The effect of adding different concentrations of sodium perchlorate on the rate of reaction between aromatic aldehydes viz. p-methoxybenzaldehyde, p-methylbenzaldehyde, benzaldehyde, p-chlorobenzaldehyde and, p-nitrobenzaldehyde and t-BuOCl was studied at 350C. The results show that the ionic strength has no significant effet on the reaction rate. This indicates that the nature of reactions are not ionic and reactions take place between molecules.
