Solvent effects on solution enthalpies of adamantyl derivatives
Solution enthalpies of 1-bromoadamantane, 1-adamantanol, and 2-adamantanone in a large set of protic and aprotic solvents
are reported at 298.15 K. Solvent effects on the solution processes of these solutes are analyzed in terms of a modified TAKA
equation, involving δcav
s as the cavity term. The nature and magnitude of the major interactions which influence these processes are assessed and discussed
in terms of the solutes’ characteristics. New insights on the solution processes under scrutiny are presented.
