CONDUCTIVITY STUDY OF SODIUM BROMIDE AND SODIUM CHLORIDE SALTS IN BINARY MIXTURES OFAQUEOUS AND ORGANIC SOLVENTS
AbstractThe effect of solvent composition on the conductivity behaviour of sodium bromide (NaBr) and sodium chloride (NaCl) salts in binary mixed aqueous and organic solvents was evaluated using conductivity measurement. The specific conductivities of the salts in methanol-water, ethylene glycol-water and ethylene glycol-methanol mixtures were determined at different solvent compositions (0, 0.1, 0.4, 0.7 and 1) and concentrations (0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04 and 0.05 M) of the salts with JENWAY 4510 conductivity meter at room temperature. The results show that the conductivities of the solutions of both salts in the mixed solvent systems were higher at lower organic solvent compositions and gradually decreased with increasing composition of the solvents. It was also observed that conductivity decreased as the hydrocarbon character of the organic solvent increased in all the binary mixtures. These results have been discussed on the basis of free-ion and ion-pair interactions as well as other chemical and physical properties of the single component solvents.
