The rate of formation of Schiff base from o-Hydroxybenzaldehyde with m-anisidine has been
reported in ethyl alcohol at room temperature. The order of reaction is second. The rate of
reaction is first order with respect to o-Hydroxy benzaldehyde and first order with respect to manisidine.
Suitable reaction mechanism has been suggested for the formation of the Schiff base.
