Title: Calculation of the thermodynamic parameters and the degree of ionization of argon at sonoluminescence

Abstract

The results of the numerical simulation of the behavior of a system consisting a spherical bubble filled with gaseous argon and surrounded by water under the impact of an external periodic pressure are presented. It is shown that, under typical conditions for the experimental investigation of single-bubble sonoluminescence in such a system, conditions are created for its thermal ionization near the time instant of the maximum compression in the gas. This proves one of the main provisions of the polarization model of sonoluminescence.

  • Regression of experimental activity coefficient and dissociation constant data reported in the literature with the Hueckel and Setchenow equations and the revised HKF equations of state generated parameters and thermodynamic properties of dissociated KCl and KCl{sup 0} at 25{degrees}C and bar that can be used to calculate the standard partial molal thermodynamic properties of KCl{sup 0} and the activity coefficients of KCl at temperatures and pressures to 1000{degrees}C and 5 kbar. 46 refs., 6 figs., 4 tabs.
  • A semicontinuum approach for prediction of standard-state Gibbs free energies of ionic hydration, {Delta}{sub h}G, at high temperature steam conditions has been revised to permit predictions at temperatures from 0 to 1000{degree}C and any pressure up to 5 kbar. The revised semicontinuum model provides for a more realistic identification of inner-shell and outer-shell contributions. The inner-shell term accounts for contributions to {Delta}{sub h}G from the first six H{sub 2}O molecules of hydration. Inner-shell contributions are calculated by using available experimental equilibrium constants for successive ionic hydration reactions and an empirical parameter that represents the effective volume increment per H{sub 2}Omore » of hydration. The outer-shell term accounts for contributions to {Delta}{sub h}G from H{sub 2}O molecules outside the inner-shell region. Outer-shell contributions are obtained from the Born equation using the bulk solvent dielectric constant and an empirical parameter that represents the effective Born radius. The empirical parameters in the revised model are characterized in a manner that ensures reasonable consistency with experimental standard-state volumes and heat capacities for aqueous electrolytes. Calculations on alkali-metal halide and alkali-metal hydroxide electrolytes are considered, and the results for NaCl are used to illustrate the pressure and temperature behavior of standard-state properties. Evaluation of uncertainties in predicted values for {Delta}{sub h}G supports application of the revised model for rough quantitative estimation of standard-state properties at supercritical conditions. The validity of the revised model at supercritical conditions is also supported by a comparison of calculated and experimental apparent molal heat capacities for NaCl.« less
  • Correlation algorithms permit prediction of species-dependent parameters in revised equations of state for aqueous ions and electrolytes which can be used together with values at 25{degree}C and 1 bar of the standard partial molal entropies ({anti S}{sup 0}), volumes ({anti V}{sup 0}), and heat capacities ({anti C}{sub P}{sup 0}) of the ions to calculate their standard partial molal thermodynamic properties at pressures and temperatures to 5 kb and 1000{degree}C. Values of {anti V}{sup 0} and {anti C}{sub P}{sup 0} at 25{degree}C and 1 bar have been calculated for 128 aqueous ions from analysis of published experimental data or from correlationsmore » of these properties with {anti S}{sup 0}. Equation of state parameters have also been generated for these ions and examples are given of predicted standard partial molal thermodynamic properties of representative cations and anions at high pressures and temperatures. Close agreement between independently predicted and experimentally determined equilibrium constants for acid anion dissociation reactions at high temperatures supports the validity and generality of the predictive algorithms.« less
  • Photo induced birefringent materials can be used to develop optical and conversion energy devices, and consequently, the study of the variables that influences the creation and relaxation of birefringence should be carefully analyzed. In this work, the parameters of birefringence creation and relaxation kinetics curves obtained on layer-by-layer (LBL) films, prepared from azo-polyectrolyte poly[1-[4-(3-carboxy-4 hydroxyphenylazo) benzene sulfonamido]-1,2-ethanediyl, sodium salt] (PAZO) and poly(allylamine hydrochloride)(PAH), are related with the presence of counterions and the degree of ionization of the polyelectrolytes. Those kinetics curves obtained on PAH/PAZO LBL films, prepared from PAH solutions with different pHs and maintaining the pH of PAZO solutionmore » constant at pH = 9, were analyzed taking into account the films composition which was characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The creation and relaxation birefringence curves are justified by two processes: one associated to local mobility of the azobenzene with a characteristic time 30 s and intensity constant and other associated with polymeric chains mobility with the characteristic time and intensity decreasing with pH. These results allow us to conclude that the birefringence creation process, associated to local mobility of azobenzenes is independent of the degree of ionization and of number of counterions or co-ions present while the birefringence creation process associated to mobility of chains have its characteristic time and intensity dependent of both degree of ionization and number of counterions. The birefringence relaxation processes are dependent of the degree of ionization. The analysis of the films composition revealed, in addition, the presence of a protonated secondary or tertiary amine revealing that PAZO may have positive charges and consequently a zwitterionic behavior.« less
