ABSTRACT Solubilities of seven imidazoles (1H-imidazole, 2-methyl-1H-imidazole, benzimidazole, 2-methylbenzimi-dazole, 2-phenylimidazole, 4,5-diphenylimidazole, and 2,4,5-triphenylimidazole) in organic solvents (dichloromethane, 1-chlorobutane, toluene, and 2-nitrotoluene) have been measured using a synthetic method and liquid chromatography. The interactions of the imidazoles, benzimidazoles, or phenylimi-dazoles with different solvents are discussed. The solubilities of these imidazoles in chloroalkanes were very low. In all solvents studied, the solubility of phenylmidazoles was significantly lower than the solubility of 1H-imidazole or benzimidazoles. Experimental results of solubility were correlated by means of the Wilson, UNIQUAC, and NRTL equations utilizing parameters derived from solid-liquid equilibria results. The existence of a solid-solid first-order phase transition in the solute has been taken into consideration in the solubility calculation. The best correlation of the solubility data was obtained by the Wilson equation with the average root-mean-square deviation σ T equal to 3.2 K.

    ABSTRACT: The solid–liquid equilibrium (SLE) phase diagrams of anthracene + 2-phenylimidazole, anthracene + 4,5-diphenylimidazole and anthracene + 2,4,5-triphenylimidazole, were measured using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). These systems formed a simple eutectic diagrams. The eutectic composition in different mixtures has been determined by the Tammann's method. The curves of the liquidus in the ideal case were calculated and represented. The {anthracene + 2-phenylimidazole} system exhibits more non-ideal behavior than the two others. Thus, to illustrate the effect of steric hindrance, the eutectic composition and the eutectic temperature as a function of the phenyls number have been represented.

    ABSTRACT: The solubility of 19 halogenated alkanes was measured in polar and nonpolar organic solvents using a dynamic method that produces more precise measurements than static methods. The solutions were analyzed with gas chromatography. A discrete-continuum solvation model was applied to investigate the influence of the solvent nature on the solubility of the compounds studied. It was shown that universal interactions between the solvent and the solute molecules, including the dispersive, inductive, and dipole–dipole interactions, dominate the solvation process. The dependences ln x298 φα and ln x298 φμ were obtained between the solubility logarithms at 298 K (ln x298) and the parameters that determine the solute–solvent interactions for nonpolar (φα) and polar (φμ) solvents, respectively. The role of the cavity formation energy in the solvation process was demonstrated. Finally, the correlation ln x298 = f(V2) was suggested, where V2 is the volume of a solute molecule in the solution.

    ABSTRACT: The solubilities of decahydropyrazino[2,3-b]pyrazine (DHPP) in methanol, ethanol, and 2-propanol were measured at temperatures ranging from 274.95 to 354.75 K. The last crystal disappearance method was used to determine the solubility of DHPP. The experimental data were correlated by the van’t Hoff plot, λh (Buchowski) equation, modified Apelblat equation, and two local composition models (Wilson and NRTL). Moreover, the densities of (DHPP + water) solution were measured from 274.25 to 355.95 K, and the liquid molar volume of DHPP, Vm1(T), was obtained and used to calculate the parameters in the Wilson model. It was found that NRTL model gave the best correlation results. On the basis of the NRTL model and experimental data, the thermodynamic excess functions (ΔGE, ΔSE, and ΔHE) of DHPP + alcohols (methanol, ethanol, and 2-propanol) systems were determined. Furthermore, the infinite-dilution activity coefficient and the infinite-dilution reduced excess enthalpy (γ1∞ and ΔHE1∞) were derived.
