Nucleophilicity of hydroperoxide anion towards 4-nitrophenyl diethylphosphonate (NPDEPS) in the
presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (water, 25 °C) was studied within wide range of acidity
and hydroperoxide concentration. Increase in the rate of reaction at its transfer from water into micellar
pseudophase reached ~10 times that is explained by the effects of concentrating. In CTABr micelles, as
in water, hydroperoxide anion is one of the most efficient α-nucleophiles, and the value of α-effect
characterized as the ratio of second-order reaction rates for reaction of HOO- and OH- anions with
NPDEPS remains essentially constant and reaches ~50.
