## Solutions

**Solution**is a two-component system.

## Energy Changes and the Solution Process

When some solute dissolves into solvent, energetics must become favorable

*ΔG = ΔH - TΔS*

governs the dissolution process. So there are two components:

Enthalpy (*Δ H* part)

Entropy (*Δ S* part)

In all cases, Entropy term is favorable for making a solution. This is because a solution is more disorderly than the separate solute and solvent.

_{solute}). Always, ΔH

_{solute}> 0

_{solvent}). Always, ΔH

_{solute}> 0

_{intxn}). In this picture, ΔH is larger (more negative) than the magnitude of ΔH

_{solute}+ ΔH

_{solvent}. Therefore, overall dissolution process is exothermic. Exothermicity (or endothemicity) really depends on the interaction b/w solute and solvent.

**Similar molecules have similar groups (substituents), therefore they have similar intermolecular forces so that they can dissolve each other.**

*Like dissolves like.*Here is the solubility of alcohols in water. Alcohol has OH group, which can hydrogen-bond to water to dissolve. As the chain length gets longer, it becomes more non-polar (fat-like) thus reducing the solubility.

Name | Formula | Solubility in water |
---|---|---|

Methanol | CH_{3}OH | Completely |

Ethanol | CH_{3}CH_{2}OH | Completely |

Propanol | CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}OH | Completely |

Butaanol | CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}OH | 74g/100g H |

Pentanol | CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}OH | 27g |

Hexanol | CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}OH | 6 g |

Heptanol | CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}OH | 1.7 g |

Octanol | CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}OH | 0 g |

## Units of Concentration

We know already few units of concentration*Molarity (M)*

M = mol_{solute}/ 1 L

_{sol'n}

*Mole Fraction (Χ)*

Χ = mol_{solute}/ mol

_{total}

*Mass Percent (%*_{mass})

%_{mass})

_{mass}= g

_{solute}/ g

_{total}x 100%

_{solute}/ g

_{total}x 10

^{6}

_{solute}/ g

_{total}x 10

^{9}

*Molality (m)*

m = mol_{solute}/ 1 kg

_{solvent}

Density (ρ) can also be considered as concentration unit, in this respect.

Conversion between these units is accomplished, none other than, yes, *Dimensional Analysis!*

** Example:** Consider an aqueous solution of CO(NH

_{3})

_{2}with its ρ = 1.00 g/mL. Given that m = 2.577 m, what are the %

_{mass}of solute, ppm of solute, mole fraction of solvent, and molarity?

μ_{CO(NH3)2} = 60.062 g/mol

$$?{g}_{CO{(N{H}_{3})}_{2}}=2.577mo{l}_{CO{(N{H}_{3})}_{2}}\left(\frac{60.062{g}_{CO{(N{H}_{3})}_{2}}}{1mo{l}_{CO{(N{H}_{3})}_{2}}}\right)=154.779774g$$

Therefore, total mass, *m _{total}*= 1000 g + 154.779774 g = 1154.779774 g, then
$$\%=\left(\frac{154.779774g}{1154.779774g}\right)100\%=1.340\times {10}^{-5}\%$$

For ppm, instead of multiplying 100 to the ratio, 10^{6} is mulitiplied to obtain

0.1340 ppm.

For χ, you need the total number of moles, which is the sum of *mol _{solute} + mol_{solvent}*. The # of moles of solvent is,

$$?mo{l}_{{H}_{2}O}=1k{g}_{{H}_{2}O}\left(\frac{{10}^{3}{g}_{{H}_{2}O}}{1k{g}_{{H}_{2}O}}\right)\left(\frac{1mo{l}_{{H}_{2}O}}{18.016{g}_{{H}_{2}O}}\right)=55.506mol$$

Therefore, *mol _{total}* = 55.560 + 2..577 = 58.10832 mol, so χ

_{solvent}= 0.9556.

For molarity, assuming the solution density is 1.00 g/mL, we can convert total mass of solution, which was calculated to be 1154.8 g = 1.1548 L in volume, thus to obtain *M* = 2.323 M.

## Factors affecting Solubility

*Effect of Temperature*

Generally, higher the temperature more solute can be dissolved.

Solid dissolving in water generally increases, while gas in water decreases.

Except,
NaCl doesn't really change its solubility over the range of 0°C to 100°C. In addition,
Ce_{2}(SO_{4})_{3} actually decrease its solubility in the range of 0°C to about 40°C.

*Effect of Pressure*

The concentration of gas is proportional to the gas pressure applied.

Therefore, we have

*k P*

_{gas}where [ ] is the concentration of gas in solution, and *k* is called Henry's law constant with M/atm unit.

## Colligative Properties

Physical changes induced by small amount of solute. They depend only on the concentration, and not the nature and/or type of solute.
**4 types**

## Raoult's Law: Vapor Pressure Lowering

In comparison to pure liquid, solution has lower vapor pressure. The vapor pressure depends on the mole fraction of solvent,*χ*.

_{solv}

*For solvent with non-volatile solute*

*P*

_{sol'n}= P_{solv}χ_{solv}where subscripts sol'n and solv indicate solution and pure solvent, respectively.

*For solvent with volatile solute*

The total pressure now contains, not only the solvent vapor, but also contains solute vapor.
Therefore, the total pressure is a sum of the two contributions

*P*

_{total}= P_{solv}+ P_{solute}= P°_{solv}χ_{solv}+ P°_{solute}+ χ_{solute}

## Boiling Point Elevation

Boiling point is higher in solution than that of pure solvent.*ΔT = k*

_{b}m
where *ΔT* is the change in boiling point, *m* is the molality of sol'n,
and *k _{b}* is the boiling point elevation constant. For water as solvent,

*k*is 0.516 °C kg/mol.

_{b}

For ionic solute, the equation must be corrected by van't Hoff factor, *i*

*ΔT = i k*

_{b}mThe van't Hoff factor is close to the number of ions from a solute molecule, but it does depend on the extent of dissociation. Effectively it is the # of ions, for our purpose.

## Freezing Point Depression

For freezing point, the effect of having solution is in the opposite of boiling point, and the freezing point measured with sol'n is lower than the pure solvent.

*ΔT = k*

_{f}m
where *ΔT* is the change in freezing point, *m* is the molality of sol'n,
and *k _{f}* is the freezing point depression constant. For water as solvent,

*k*is 1.918 °C kg/mol.

_{f}

For ionic solute, the equation must be corrected by van't Hoff factor, *i*

*ΔT = i k*

_{f}m

**You are asked to design an antifreeze system of a radiator for automobile use. Let's say that the radiator has a capacity of 10.0 L, and ethylene glycol, C**

*Example:*_{2}H

_{6}O

_{2}, is the mixed with water to make the antifreeze solution. Let's say that it is capable of withstanding the cold temperature of 14°F. How many kg of ethylene glycol does the radiator require to the temperature? Assume that density of water is 1.000 g/mL.

We first need to convert 14°F to Celcius scale.
$$T\left({}^{\circ}F\right)=\frac{5}{9}\left[T\left({}^{\circ}C\right)-32\right]$$
$$T\left({}^{\circ}C\right)=\frac{5}{9}\left(14-32\right)=-10{}^{\circ}C$$
Therefore, the Δ*T* = 10°C. We use this in
$\Delta T={k}_{f}m$. We solve for *m* (molality) with *k _{f}
* = 1.918°C kg/mol.
$$m=\frac{\Delta T}{{k}_{f}}=\frac{10{}^{\circ}C}{1.918{}^{\circ}Ckg/mol}=5.214mol/kg$$
Since the capacity of the radiator is 10.0L, therefore, the mass is 10.0 kg, so this
can be converted to ethylene glycol mass.
$$?k{g}_{ethylene}=10k{g}_{water}\left(\frac{5.214mo{l}_{ethylene}}{1k{g}_{water}}\right)\left(\frac{62.07{g}_{ethylene}}{1mo{l}_{ethylene}}\right)\left(\frac{1kg}{{10}^{3}g}\right)=3.24kg$$

## Osmotic Pressure

A bent tube, with a semipermeable membrane where only H_{2}O molecules can pass, contains a solution on the left chamber and pure H

_{2}O on the right. In order for the system to reach equilibrium to equalize the concentration, water moves from the right chamber to left. The pressure exerted on the left chamber to stop the flow of water from the right is called osmotic pressure, π. The relationship between π and concentration is as follows,

$$\pi =\frac{nRT}{V}=MRT$$
where *M* is the molarity of the solution. It resembles IGL!

**Often protein molar mass is obtained from osmotic pressure measurement. If a solution of protein is prepared by dissolving 0.0500 g of the protein in 10.00 mL water, measuring an osmotic pressure of 15.5 mm**

*Example:*_{Hg}at 20.0°C, what is the molar mass of protein?

Rearrange the equation so that

*M = Π/RT*

Π = 0.01974 atm,

so, *n* = [(0.01974 atmi)(0.01 L)]/(0.08206 Latm/molK)(293.15 K) = 8.2046 x
10^{-6} mol_{protein}

and *μ* = 0.0500 g/(8.2046 x 10^{-6} mol) = 6094 g/mol

## Fractional Distillation

From vapor pressure lowering for solutions with volatile solute,

*P*

_{total}= P°_{A}χ_{A}+ P°_{B}χ_{B}

The diagrams shows the temperature phase diagram as a fxn of mole fraction.

The top part (orange shade) is gas phsae, and the bottom part (pink) is the liquid. The phase boundary in this diagram is separated, due to the volatile nature of the solute. It means that at a certain temperature, the vapor composition (mole fraction) is different from that of the liquid composition (mole fraction).

For example, at 90°C, vapor has 20% toluene, but liquid has 40% toluene. This difference is utilized to concentrate, for example, alcohol from a dilute solution.

**Let's say that you are distilling a solution of alcohol with the mole fraction of alcohol to be 0.05. Your distiller operates at 64°C, at which vapor pressure of water is 153 mm**

*Example:*_{Hg}, and of ethanol is 400 mm

_{Hg}How many iterations does it take to alchohol content to be higher than 50%

_{mole}alchohol?

So, we start with:

χ_{alc} = 0.05 : P°_{alc} = 400 mm_{Hg}

χ_{water} = 0.95 : P°_{water} = 153 mm_{Hg}

Since P = P° χ, vapor pressures are

P_{alc} = (400 mm_{Hg})(0.05) = 20 mm_{Hg}

P_{water} = (153 mm_{Hg})(0.95) = 145.35 mm_{Hg}

Then, P_{total} = 165.35 mm_{Hg}
So, now we can recompute the mole fraction in vapor by using * χ = P/P _{total}
*

We have:

χ_{alc} = 20 mm_{Hg}/165.35 mm_{Hg} = 0.121

χ_{water} = 145.35 mm_{Hg}/165.35 mm_{Hg} = 0.879

Now, you see alcohol content went up more than twice as much! If you condense this vapor to a liquid, and do the calculations over, you get:

**2 ^{nd} iteration**

P

_{alc}= (400 mm

_{Hg})(0.121) = 48.4 mm

_{Hg}

P

_{water}= (153 mm

_{Hg})(0.879) = 134.5 mm

_{Hg}

P_{total} = 182.9 mm_{Hg}

χ_{alc} = 48.4 mm_{Hg}/182.9 mm_{Hg} = 0.265

χ_{water} = 134.5 mm_{Hg}/182.9 mm_{Hg} = 0.735

**3 ^{rd} iteration**

P

_{alc}= (400 mm

_{Hg})(0.265) = 106.0 mm

_{Hg}

P

_{water}= (153 mm

_{Hg})(0.735) = 112.4 mm

_{Hg}

P_{total} = 218.4 mm_{Hg}

χ_{alc} = 106.0 mm_{Hg}/218.4 mm_{Hg} = 0.485

χ_{water} = 112.4 mm_{Hg}/218.4 mm_{Hg} = 0.515

**4 ^{th} iteration**

P

_{alc}= (400 mm

_{Hg})(0.485) = 194.0 mm

_{Hg}

P

_{water}= (153 mm

_{Hg})(0.515) = 78.8 mm

_{Hg}

P_{total} = 272.8 mm_{Hg}

χ_{alc} = 194.0 mm_{Hg}/272.8 mm_{Hg} = 0.711

χ_{water} = 78.8 mm_{Hg}/272.8 mm_{Hg} = 0.289

So, after 4 iterations, alcohol content is over 70%.
