The second order reaction rate constant for the reaction of 5-
Chlorosalicylaldehyde with p-toluidine have been reported in ethanol at temperature
range 303 to 318 k .The rate of reaction is first order with respect to 5-
Chlorosalicylaldehyde and p-toluidine. The rate of reaction increases with increases in
temperature. The thermodynamic parameters are used to explain the nature of reaction.
Suitable reaction mechanism has been suggested for the formation of the Schiff base.
From the effect of temperature on the rate of reaction various thermodynamic parameter
have been evaluated.
