Abstract: The kinetic solvent isotope effect on t h e redox reaction of U(IV) ions with ferricyanide ions was studied. The measured temperature-dependent values of kH2O/kD20 as well as the values of δΔH and δΔS were interpreted from the point of view of t h e proposed reaction mechanism. The increase in activation enthalpy in heavy water by 2.5 kcal mol-1 when compared with light water supports the idea of the electron transfer between U(IV) and HFe(CN)62-ions by  the —OH (or —OD) bond mechanism.
