Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Entropy of transfer of nitromethane, nitroethane, 1-nitrobutane, 1-nitropentane, and 1-nitrohexane from n-octane to water at 25°C is calculated using an electrostatic model. The calculations indicate that the electrostatic transfer entropy depends primarily on the dipole moment and the size of the-C-NO2 group, showing a trend which is similar to that previously found for the transfer free energy of the same process.
