Solubility and Activity Coefficients of Three Triazine-Type Compounds in Various Low Ionic Strength Aqueous Solutions

In this work, three triazine-type compounds were studied for their solubilities in aqueous and saline environments. Using potentiometric titration and gravimetric methods, the solubility of cyanuric acid (CA), 1,3,5-Triacryloylhexahydro-1,3,5-triazine (TR), and 1,3,5-Tris(2-hydroxyethyl) cyanuric acid (IC) were studied in aqueous NaCl solutions (0 to 0.226 mol·kg-1). From the solubility results, Setschenow coefficients, octanol/water partition coefficients, activity coefficients, and infinite dilution activity coefficients were determined. The trend in solubility in pure water was IC >> TR > CA. The activity coefficient for CA increased continuously throughout the studied salt range. TR and IC, on the other hand, revealed a salting in and salting out effect based on the salt composition. 


Evaluation of Infinite Dilution Activity Coefficients for Hydrogen Sulfide Absorption in Butyl-Methylimidazolium-Type Ionic Liquids

Hydrogen sulfide extraction from sour crude oils and gases has been a major concern for for decades. Cyclic absorption/stripping processes using amine-type absorbents are commonly used to remove H2S but suffer from production of volatile organic carbons (VOCs) during the regeneration phase. Ionic Liquids (ILs), however, are a new family of absorbent materials that are being sought to replace amine sorbents due to lower production of VOCs and possible reduced costs of the regenerative stripping phase. The Ionic Liquids that have been chosen for this work were 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride, and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate. The activity coefficients at infinite dilution were determined at temperatures 333 and 353 K using the diluter technique. In addition, excess thermodynamic values (chemical potential, enthalpy, and entropy) at infinite dilution were determined. The excess enthalpy values indicated that [C4mim][PF6] exhibited exothermic dissolution, while [C4mim][Cl] and [C4mim][BF4] exhibited endothermic dissolution.


Surface Modifications of Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles with Polylactic Acid-Polyethylene Glycol Diblock Copolymer and Graphene Oxide for a Protein Delivery Vehicle

As a protein delivery vehicle, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) with an average size of 19.6 ± 4.8 nm were coated with polylactic acid (PLA) (5000)-polyethylene glycol (PEG) (10000) diblock copolymer and single layer graphene oxide (GO). Bovine serum albumin was selected as the model protein, and the drug loading capacity of the designed vehicle is 2013 ± 79 mg g-1. The drug release result shows that the average percentage of cumulative drug release after 47 days in vitro is 37.7% ± 1.4%.
