Solubility of Imidazoles in Ethers

Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data (Impact Factor: 2.05). 02/2003; 48(3). DOI: 10.1021/je020113t

ABSTRACT Solid−liquid equilibrium (SLE) has been measured from 270 K to the melting temperature of the solid for 15 binary mixtures of an imidazole (1H-imidazole, 2-methyl-1H-imidazole, and 1,2-dimethylimidazole) with ethers [dipropyl ether, dibutyl ether, dipentyl ether, methyl 1,1-dimethylethyl ether (tert-butyl methyl ether), and methyl 1,1-dimethylpropyl ether (tert-amyl methyl ether)] using a dynamic method. The solubility of imidazoles in ethers is lower than that in alcohols and in water and generally decreases with increasing of the ether chain length. Additionally, two liquid phases were observed for mixtures of 1H-imidazole and 1,2-dimethylimidazole in dibutyl ether and dipentyl ether. The intermolecular solute−solvent interaction is higher for branch chain ethers, and the mutual solubility is much higher, which results in one liquid phase being observed. Experimental results of solubility are compared with values calculated by means of the Wilson, UNIQUAC, and NRTL equations utilizing parameters derived from SLE results. The existence of a solid−solid first-order phase transition in 2-methyl-1H-imidazole has been observed and has been taken into consideration in the solubility calculation. The best correlation of the solubility data was obtained with the Wilson equation.

    ABSTRACT: The solubility of caprolactam in methyl tert-butyl ether, isopropyl ether, 1-propanol, 2-propanol, and 1-butanol was measured at the temperature range from 278.15 K to 313.15 K under atmospheric pressure. The experimental data were correlated by the modified Apelblat equation which fits well with the experimental data. The dissolution enthalpy and entropy were predicted. Moreover, the solubility data were correlated using two local composition models: NRTL 1 and UNIQUAC.

    ABSTRACT: The solid−liquid equilibrium (SLE) has been measured from 270 K to 445 K for 10 binary mixtures of benzimidazoles (benzimidazole and 2-methylbenzimidazole) with alcohols (1-propanol, 1-butanol, 2-butanol, 2-methyl-2-propanol, 1-hexanol) using a dynamic method. The melting point, enthalpy of fusion, and heat capacity change at the melting temperature were determined by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The solubility of benzimidazoles in alcohols (C3−C6) is higher than in water and in 1-octanol and generally decreases with an increase of the alkyl chain length of the alcohol. The intermolecular solute−solvent interaction is higher for the 1-alcohol than for the secondary or tertiary alcohol. The solubility of 2-methylbenzimidazole in alcohols (C3−C6) is higher than that of benzimidazole. Experimental results of solubility were correlated by means of the Wilson, UNIQUAC ASM, and NRTL 1 equations utilizing parameters derived from SLE results. The existence of a solid−solid first-order phase transition in benzimidazole and 2-methylbenzimidazole has been observed in the DSC measurements and has been taken into consideration in the solubility calculation. The best correlation of the solubility data has been obtained by the NRTL 1 equation.

    ABSTRACT: The solubilities of 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate, [emim][PF6], in aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, o-xylene, m-xylene, p-xylene) and of 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate, [bmim][PF6], in the same aromatic hydrocarbons, in n-alkanes (pentane, hexane, heptane, octane), and in cyclohydrocarbons (cyclopentane, cyclohexane) have been measured by a dynamic method from 290 K to the melting point of the ionic liquid or to the boiling point of the solvent. The melting point, enthalpy of fusion, and enthalpies of solid−solid phase transitions were determined by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The solubilities of [emim][PF6] and [bmim][PF6] in aromatic hydrocarbons decrease with an increase of the molecular weight of the solvent. The differences of the solubilities in o-, m-, and p-xylene are not significant. The intermolecular solute−solvent interactions are very small. The liquidus curves were correlated by means of the UNIQUAC and NRTL equations, utilizing parameters derived from the solid−liquid equilibrium. The average root-mean-square deviation of the solubility temperatures for all solvents was 0.41 K and depended on the particular equation used.
