The kinetics of the reaction of leuco methylene blue (MBH) with 2,6-dimethyl-p-benzoquinone (DMBQ) were studied in a heptane/bis(2-ethylhexyl)-sulfosuccinate (AOT)/water reverse micellar system. The pseudo-first-order rate constant (k (obsd)) obtained in the presence of excess of DMBQ was found to be proportional to the initial concentration of DMBQ for W (0)=3, 5, 10, 15 and 20 (W (0)=[H2O]/[AOT]). The second-order rate constant (k (2)=k (obsd)/[DMBQ](0)) increased with an increase in the W (0) value, but was almost independent of the concentration of the water pool. A mechanism involving the distribution of DMBQ between the reverse micellar interface and bulk organic solvent was proposed to explain these findings.
