CsCl in nearly isodielectric aqueous mixtures with tetrahydrofuran, 1,2-dimethoxyethane and dioxane has been studied at temperatures between 0° and 35°C. The conductance data are analyzed for the limiting conductance Λ0 and the association constant K A by means of the Justice-Ebeling conductance equation. By application of the Bjerrum equation an apparent distance of closest approach á is evaluated. This parameter is generally close to the crystallographic radius, 35Å. The deviations are attributed to solvation effects and are interpreted in terms of the Friedman-Rasaiah-Gurney cosphere overlap model. The variations of the effect with temperature permits an evaluation of enthalpy and entropy solvation parameters.
