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 solubility of azithromycin monohydrate in ethanol, propan-2-ol, butan-1-ol, ethyl ethanoate, and 2-propanone from 278.15 K to 323.15 K was measured by a synthetic method. The measured solubility data were correlated by van’t Hoff equation, modified Apelblat equation, λh equation, Wilson, and NRTL models. It was found that the Wilson equations give the best correlation results. The mixing properties including the mixing free Gibbs energy, enthalpy, and entropy of azithromycin monohydrate were also calculated based on the Wilson model parameters. The results indicate that the dissolution process of azithromycin monohydrate in all tested solvents is spontaneous and endothermic.

    ABSTRACT: The solubilities of lauric acid in methanol, ethanol, propanol, n-butanol, n-pentanol, n-hexanol, isobutanol, and isoamylol were measured by synthetic method in the temperature ranging from (276.17 to 306.12) K. Results of these measurements were correlated by the modified Apelblat equation, the lambda h equation and activity coefficient models (NRTL and UNIQUAC). It was found that the modified Apelblat equation and the lambda h equation gave better correlation results. The thermodynamic properties of the solution process, including the Gibbs energy, enthalpy, and entropy were calculated by the vant Hoff analysis.

    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.
