Abstract:

Certain solubility-linked physical properties of soap solvent systems have been shown to be functions of the solubility parameter of the solvent. The lowest critical solution temperatures for zinc and lead stearates occur in solvents having a solubility parameter of 8.9. Maximum swelling of lithium and sodium stearatesolvent systems occurs at a solvent solubility parameter of 9.3. In addition, the geljelly-or-sol transition temperatures for aluminum dilauratesolvent systems have been shown to be an approximately linear function of solvent solubility parameter. A qualitative explanation for the observed results is based upon an analogy to high polymersolvent systems. Author
