Abstract

In this work, the partial molar volumes of glycine and dl-alanine in aqueous solutions of ammonium sulfate at 0.0, 0.1, 0.3, 0.7, and 1.0 mol·kg-1 are determined between 278.15 and 308.15 K. Transfer volumes were obtained, which are larger for glycine than dl-alanine. On the contrary, the hydration numbers are higher for dl-alanine than glycine, and dehydration of the amino acids is observed with increasing temperature or salt molality. The data suggest that interactions between ion and charged/hydrophilic groups are predominant and, by applying the methodology proposed by Friedman and Krishnan, it was concluded that they are mainly pairwise. A group-contribution scheme has been successfully applied to the pairwise volumetric interaction coefficient. Finally, the dehydration effect on glycine, alanine and serine in the presence of different electrolytes has been rationalized in terms of the charge density and a parameter accounting for the cation's hydration
