Reaction of OPD+H2O2 with Mb Catalyst in Hexane Suspension

The procedurefor the reaction of OPD and H2O2 was followed using a Mb/Tris and Mb/Citrate catalyst and an hexane suspension. The reaction was run in a beaker with a stir bar and the solution was filtered before taking a spectrum.

Note: A spectrum at 140 minutes was not taken because there was not enough liquid in the beaker. Through out the reaction, there was an oily burnt orange precipitate in the solution.
