Development of Abraham model correlations for solvation characteristics of linear alcohols

Fluid Phase Equilibria (Impact Factor: 2.24). 12/2009; 286(2):170-174. DOI: 10.1016/j.fluid.2009.09.004

ABSTRACT Data have been compiled from the published literature on the partition coefficients of solutes and vapors into the anhydrous linear alcohols (methanol through 1-heptanol, and 1-decanol) from both water and from the gas phase. The logarithms of the water-to-alcohol partition coefficients (log P) and gas-to-alcohol partition coefficients (log K) were correlated with the Abraham solvation parameter model. The derived correlations described the observed log P and log K values to within average standard deviations of 0.14 and 0.12 log units, respectively. The predictive abilities of the each correlation were assessed by dividing databases into a separate training set and test set.

    ABSTRACT: Equations have been constructed for the transfer of neutral solutes from water to the solventsethylene glycol and propylene carbonate. These equations have been extended to include ions and ionic species derived from acids by loss of a proton and bases by acceptance of a proton. Only one additional term is needed for cations and one additional term for anions. The data used include literature data on the partition coefficients of simple ions, and literature data on pKa values for carboxylic acids and amines in water, ethylene glycol and propylene carbonate from which we derive ionic partition coefficients. Descriptors have been obtained for 22 substituted pyridinium cations, and equations derived for the prediction of descriptors for further substituted pyridinium cations. Some of the pyridinium cations are the strongest hydrogen bond acids that we have encountered.

    ABSTRACT: Data have been compiled from the published literature on the partition coefficients of solutes and vapors into the anhydrous secondary and branched alcohols (2-propanol, 2-butanol, 2-methyl-1-propanol, 2-methyl-2-propanol and 3-methyl-1-butanol) from both water and from the gas phase. The logarithms of the water-to-alcohol partition coefficients (log P) and gas-to-alcohol partition coefficients (log K) were correlated with the Abraham solvation parameter model. The derived correlations described the observed log P and log K values to within average standard deviations of 0.14 and 0.13 log units, respectively. The predictive abilities of the each correlation were assessed by dividing databases into a separate training set and test set.

    ABSTRACT: Equations that can be used for partition coefficients of both neutral molecules and ions have been revised, and the term that is specific to ions has been re-evaluated. A new method has been devised for the determination of partition coefficients from water to organic solvents for carboxylate anions that is based on the variation of pK(a) for carboxylic acids with solvent. Using these partition coefficients, descriptors for carboxylate anions, on the same scale as descriptors for neutral molecules, have been obtained for 71 such anions. For 13 carboxylate anions in a test set, descriptors could be predicted that in turn led to predictions of 78 log P values over six water-solvent systems with an absolute error of 0.13 and a standard deviation of only 0.55 log units. Descriptors have been obtained for 26 protonated amines as a training set and descriptors predicted for 17 protonated amines as a test set. The predicted descriptors in turn led to the prediction of 18 log P values for protonated amines with an absolute error of 0.09 and a standard deviation of 0.39 log units. The carboxylate anions are the strongest monofunctional hydrogen bond bases, and the protonated amines are the strongest monofunctional hydrogen bond acids that we have studied.
