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: In this research, a new polymorph of florfenicol (form B) was discovered and successfully prepared. The new polymorph was characterized and identified by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) techniques. It was found that form A has lower melting temperature while higher fusion enthalpy. The solubility of both florfenicol polymorphs in methanol, 2-propanol, acetone, acetonitrile, ethanol, and ethyl acetate were experimentally determined from 278.15 to 318.15 K with a dynamic method. For all tested solvents, the solubility data of florfenicol form B are higher than those of form A. The modified Apelblat model, the NRTL model, and the lambda h model were adopted to calculate the solubility of florfenicol two forms with satisfactory correlation results. In addition, the dissolution thermodynamic properties of florfenicol form A and form B, including dissolution enthalpy, dissolution entropy, and Gibb's dissolution energy in all tested solvents, were obtained. Combining the results of DCS determination, the solubility, and all the dissolution thermodynamic data, it was confirmed that florfenicol polymorph A and polymorph B belong to the enantiotropic polymorph system.

    ABSTRACT: The solubility of nicotinamide in water, methanol, ethanol, 2-propanol, n-butanol, and ethyl acetate at temperatures ranging from 288.15 K to 318.15 K was measured via a static gravimetric analytic method, and the melting temperature and fusion enthalpy of nicotinamide were obtained using differential scanning calorimetry. The experimental solubility data were correlated by the modified Apelblat equation, the van’t Hoff equation, the λh (Buchowski) equation, and the Wilson model; the van’t Hoff equation shows the best agreement. Furthermore, the dissolution enthalpy and dissolution entropy of nicotinamide in the corresponding solvents were predicted.

    ABSTRACT: The solubility of cefradine form I in five pure solvents from (283.15 to 308.15) K was experimentally determined by using an equilibrium method. It was found that the solubility of cefradine form I in all tested solvents increased with the increase of temperature. Four thermodynamic models were used to correlate the experimental solubility data. The infinite-dilution activity coefficient and mixing properties including the mixing free Gibbs energy, enthalpy, and entropy of cefradine form I solution were also calculated by using the nonrandom two-liquid (NRTL) model. It was found that the correlated results by the van’t Hoff equation, the modified Apelblat equation, and the NRTL model agreed well with the experimental data.
