A quantitative study of the effect of the periodate- glycol complex upon the rate of the periodate-glycol reaction was made in an earlier paper. The data for the present paper were taken before those of the previously published paper and, for the most part, before the importance of the periodate-glycol complex had been recognized. It has not been possible therefore to interpret the present data with the degree of thoroughness of the earlier paper. However, certain very interesting conclusions can be made.
The Effect of Variation of pH.
Effect of Changes in Solvent.
The Effects of Certain Salts.
