Abstract

The Kamlet-Taft parameters for 25 glycol ethers and aqueous solutions of the 25 glycol ethers were measured. Values for the three Kamlet-Taft parameters; the hydrogen bond donor ability, hydrogen bond acceptor ability, and the dipolarity/polarizability, as well as the index of refraction were determined for each pure glycol ether and each aqueous glycol solution. A correlation matrix between other known solvent parameters and the measured Kamlet-Taft values revealed only one correlation suggesting that the three measured Kamlet-Taft parameters for the glycol ethers are independent solvent descriptors. Lastly, trends in the measured Kamlet-Taft values were related to functional group modifications to the basic glycol ether structure.
