A comparison of the conductimetric behavior of cesium chloride in water-tetrahydrofuran, water-dioxane, and water-1,2-dimethoxyethane mixtures

  • Eliane Ranard

The association constants of CsCl in water-THF, water-dioxane, and water-1,2-DME mixtures have been evaluated from conductance data using the Pitts, the Fuoss-Hsia, and a new conductance equation which includes the Chen electrophoretic effect. It is shown that the three sets of results confirm the Bjerrum concept of association. The differences observed for the ion association in the three types of mixtures are interpreted in terms of differences in the dipolar nature of the three organic molecules and that of H2O.
