Refractive Index, Viscosity, and Solubility at 30 °C, and Density at 25 °C for the System Fructose + Glucose + Ethanol + Water

Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data (Impact Factor: 2.05). 08/2000; 45(5). DOI: 10.1021/je000080m

ABSTRACT Commercial crystalline fructose is currently prepared by chromatographic separation of aqueous solutions of fructose and glucose followed by crystallization in either aqueous or aqueous−ethanol solutions. It may be possible to use one or more crystallization steps instead of the chromatographic process, thus producing crystalline product more directly. In this study the solubility, refractive index, and viscosity of solutions of fructose + glucose + ethanol + water were measured at 30 °C, and the densities of solutions with solvent concentrations of 40, 60, and 80 mass % ethanol were measured at 25 °C. These properties will be useful for crystallization studies for this system.

    ABSTRACT: Ethambutol (EMB) is a bacteriostatic antimycobacterial drug prescribed to treat tuberculosis. It is bacteriostatic against actively growing TB bacilli. The density and viscosity of aqueous ethambutol hydrochloride solutions have been studied at 298.15, 301.15 and 304.15 K and at different concentrations (0.255, 0.168, 0.128, 0.087, 0.041, and 0.023 mol dm−3). The apparent molar volume of these solutions for different temperatures and concentrations was calculated from the density data. The relative viscosities of drug solutions have been analysed by Jones-Dole equation. The limiting apparent molar volumes have been evaluated for different temperatures. The different properties have been used to study structural properties, structure formation and breaking properties of drug and solute-solvent interactions in solutions.

    ABSTRACT: The solubilities of (2R,3S,4R)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydroxypentanal (xylose), (2R,3R,4R,5R)-2,3,5,6-tetrahydroxy-4-[(2R,3R,4S,5S,6R)-3,4,5-trihydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-2-yl]oxyhexanal hydrate (maltose monohydrate), (2R,3S,4S,5R,6R)-2-(hydroxymethyl)-6-[(2R,3R,4S,5S,6R)-3,4,5-trihydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-2-yl]oxyoxane-3,4,5-triol dihydrate (trehalose dihydrate), and (3S,4S,5S,6R)-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxane-2,3,4,5-tetrol (mannose) in the mixtures of ethanol and water from (278.2 to 298.2) K were determined. The solubilities of all the four saccharides in ethanol–water mixtures increased as equilibrium temperature increased. The solubilities of trehalose dihydrate, xylose, and mannose decreased as ethanol mass fraction in the mixed solvent increased. Maltose monohydrate solubility decreased when ethanol mass fraction in the mixed solvent was less than 0.9. The solubilities of xylose and mannose were predicted with A-UNIFAC, and the average relative deviations (ARD) values were less than 22 %. The solubilities of maltose monohydrate and trehalose dihydrate were calculated with the modified UNIQUAC model. New interaction parameters were calibrated. The ARD values for trehalose dihydrate solubility and maltose monohydrate solubility are 28.6 % and 17.9 %, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Biorefining has shown the potential as an alternative source of feedstock instead of crude oil. In parallel, ionic liquids (ILs) have proved to be adequate solvents for biomass processing. Thus, phase equilibrium between carbohydrates and ionic liquids is critical for process design and optimization in biorefineries. In this work, the solubility of glucose and fructose in six ILs were measured in the temperature range 288–339 K. An isothermal method with quantification by HPLC analysis was used. Modeling of solubility was carried out using excess Gibbs energy models (NRTL and UNIQUAC). Experimental data were also compared with literature data. The thermodynamic functions of the dissolution process were calculated from the experimental solubilities.
