The rate of reaction between N,N′-dicyclohexylbarbituric acid 1 and ethyl 2-isocyanatoacetate 2 is invariant with temperature. Positive orders in each reactant and dissociation of triethylammonium salts of 1 and product 3 at elevated temperature indicate that reaction occurs via a catalytic mechanism where changes to the positions of equilibria negate changes in the rate of the turnover-limiting step. A model for the consumption of 1 in a flow reactor accurately predicted the outcome of a laboratory-scale multivariate study.
