    • Abstract


      Densities (ρ) of glycine, L-alanine, and L-valine in aqueous solutions of MgCl2-6H2O (0.1-0.8 mol kg-1) have been measured at 288.15, and 308.15 K. Apparent molar volumes (Vφ), and limiting partial molar volumes (Vφ0) of each amino acid have been calculated. These data were combined with the earlier reportedVφ0 values of glycine, L-alanine, and L-valine in aqueous MgCl2·6H2O solutions at 298.15 K in order to describe the temperature dependence behaviour of partial molar quantities. Group contributions to partial molar volumes have been determined for the amino acids. The trends of transfer volumes (△Vφ0) have been interpreted in terms of solute-cosolute interactions on the basis of a cosphere overlap model. Pair and triplet interaction coefficients have also been calculated from transfer parameters.
