Abstract:

Ordinate intercepts, B, at 1T degrees K 0 on log atomic fraction solute versus 1T degrees K plots for 37 binary systems were correlated with the atomic size factor which was defined as the ratio of the atomic radius of the solvent atom divided by the atomic radius of the solute atom. The results suggest that like the temperature coefficient of solubility, the ordinate intercept is strongly dependent on the disparity in the atomic radii of solvent and solute atoms. On the basis of these correlations, bearing in mind the still preliminary status of the correlations, suggestions were made regarding possible container materials for liquid Rb and liquid Cs. Author
