Abstract

The three articles contained in this thesis describe the investigation of the hydration of isobutene.

In the first paper the rates of hydration of isobutene were measured in dilute nitric acid solutions both with and without other ions present to observe possible catalytic effects.

In the second paper the equilibrium of the hydration reaction in aqueous solution was determined and, by means of additional data, the standard free energy change and change in heat content of the reaction were calculated.

In the third part the hydration in the presence of silver ion was investigated and the role of this metal in the reaction was elucidated.
