The catalytic properties of the first generation catalyst meso-tetraphenylporphyriniron(III) chloride and magnesium monoperoxyphthalate (MMPP) as oxidant have been studied in the oxidation of aniline and its substituents in acetic acid medium. The thermodynamic parameters for the oxidation have been determined and discussed. It confirms the Exner relationship (only at the low range of temperatures) and also some of the activation parameters to the isokinetic relationships. The magnesium monoperoxyphthalate oxidation with 18 ortho- meta- and para-substituted anilines fulfills with isokinetic relationship but not to any of the linear free energy relationships. The reaction mechanism and the rate law were proposed.
