Applications of Group Enthalpies of Transfer

  • Richard Fuchs


Group enthalpies of transfer are a recent development in studies of solvent — solute interactions (1–3). By this calori-metric technique qualitative and quantitative studies of subtle intermolecular interactions may he made, which would be, at best, more difficult and less quantitative by other means. We shall cite some systems about which useful information has already been obtained, and some areas where group enthalpies of transfer might be applied in the future.
