The partition of compounds from water and from air into wet and dry ketones

Abstract

Literature data on partitioning of compounds from the gas phase to ketones and from water to ketones has been collected and analyzed through the Abraham solvation equations. It is shown that for partition into both dry and wet ketones the main solvent factors that aid partitioning into the ketones are the polarizability/dipolarity, hydrogen-bond basicity and hydrophobicity (size) of the ketones. Reliable equations have been established for partitioning from the gas phase and from water to dry acetone, dry butanone, dry cyclohexanone and to wet methyl isobutyl ketone. It is further shown that partitioning into dry butanone and dry cyclohexanone leads to different equations than partitioning into the wet solvents, and that data on partitioning into the wet and dry ketones cannot be combined.
