Kinetic and mechanistic studies of some alcohols viz., allyl, crotyl, methyl and ethyl alcohol using quinquevalent vanadium in aqueous and anionic micellar media are discussed. Oxidation follows first order kinetics with respect to [V(V)], [Substrate] and [H+]. The presence of anionic surfactant viz., Sodium lauryl sulphate enhances the reaction rate. Broxton method is utilized for the determination of CMC and thermodynamic parameters viz. DE#, DH#, DG#, DS# have been computated. The mechanism is consistent with the observed results has been discussed.
