PEZZA, Helena Redigolo; LOPES, Cristiane F. Fernandes; SUAREZ-IHA, Maria Encarnación V.  and  COICHEV, Nina. Kinetic and mechanism of S(IV) autoxidation reaction catalysed by transition metal ions. Quím. Nova [online]. 1999, vol.22, n.4, pp.529-540. ISSN 0100-4042.

The oxidation process of sulfur (IV) species (SO2, HSO3- e SO32-) by oxygen, catalysed by trace metal ion and complexes, can play an important role in atmospheric, analytical and bioinorganic chemistry. An overview of the most important reactions in these fields is presented. A fascinating redox cycling of the metal ions and complexes during such autoxidation process was revealed by the combination of kinetics and coordination chemistry studies.

Keywords : sulfite; catalysed autoxidation; transition metal ions.
