Abstract

The protonation constant (pKa) of SO42-(aq) has been determined at ionic strengths 0.5 M ≤ I ≤ 4.0 M in NaCl and CsCl media at 25°C by using Raman spectroscopy. These data were used to calculate the association constant of the NaSO4- (aq) ion pair in CsCl media. The results are in excellent agreement with previous values obtained by other techniques. The pKa was also measured at I = 4 M in both media at temperatures up to 85°C and the associated enthalpy and entropy changes were calculated. However, reliable thermodynamic data for the ion-pairing reaction could not be obtained at higher temperatures probably because of competition from CsSO4-(aq).
