Abstract

A method was proposed for calculating the thermodynamic properties, freezing point depression, boiling point elevation, vapor pressure and enthalpy of vaporization for single solute electrolyte solutions, including aqueous and nonaqueous solutions, based on a modified three-characteristic-parameter correlation model. When compared with the corresponding literature values, the calculated results show that this method gives a very good approximation, especially for 1-1 electrolytes. Although the method is not very suitable for some solutions with very high ionic strength, it is still a very useful technique when experimental data is scarce.
