Temperature dependence of apparent molar volumes and viscosity B-coefficients of amino acids in aqueous potassium thiocyanate solutions from 15 to 35°C

  • Ramesh K. Wadi
  • Rma Kant Goyal


Precise density ρ and viscosity η data at 15, 25 and 35°C for solutions of glycine, DL-alanine, L-threonine, β-alanine, γ-aminobutyric acid and ε-aminocaproic acid in water and in (1m, 3m, 5m) aqueous potassium thiocyanate were measured and the limiting apparent molar volumes V ϕ o and the B-coefficients calculated. The V κ o and B values were split into the contributions from the NH 3 + ,COO and CH2 groups. These data are rationalized on the basis of hydrophillic and hydrophobic interactions between the various groups present in these solutions.
