The kinetic investigations of the oxidation of L-leucine by chloramine-T in the presence of cationic surfactant i.e. cetyl trimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) have been conducted at 30ºC. The rate constants increase initially and then decreases with the increasing concentration of CTAB. The micellebinding constant (K) and co-operativity index (n) have been calculated. The effects of halide ions, scavenger salt, solvent and ionic strength on the reaction rate have been studied. The reactions were studied at different temperatures and the values of activation parameters have been calculated.
