The oxidation of 1,1-dimethylhydrazine by bromine has been studied using a coulometric method of bromine generation, and a dual intermediate system of bromide and cupric ions in solution. The system allowed over-generation of bromine and back-titration by cupric ion. The results of the investigation showed that the mechanism of oxidation is not fixed, but is a function of the concentration of bromine in the solution at any time. Additional studies have been recommended, whereby the mechanisms of the reactions may be determined.
