Abstract

In previous articles (Partanen et al. J. Chem. Eng. Data 2019, 64, 16-33 and Partanenet al. J. Chem. Eng. Data 2019, 64, 2519-2535), we presented traceable and transparent two-parameter Hückel equations (with parameters B and b1) for the activity coefficients of the salt and for the osmotic coefficients of water in aqueous KCl solutions in the temperature range of 273.15-383.15 K. The latter article is the first part (Part 1) of the calorimetric study. We showed in these articles that our equations for these solutions explain within experimental error the literature data on almost all thermodynamic quantities including the partial molar enthalpies at least up to a molality of 0.2 mol·kg-1 and up to 373 K. In this model, parameter B is regarded as a constant but parameter b1 has a quadratic temperature dependence. No calorimetric data were needed in the parameter estimation. In the second part (Part 2) of the calorimetric study, now, the results obtained for the heat capacity quantities of KCl (aq.) are considered. We show here that all heat capacity literature available for KCl solutions at least up to 0.5 mol·kg-1 is possible to explain within experimental error using exactly the same Hückel equations as those considered previously in our studies for dilute KCl solutions from 273 to 373 K. Because of the success of the used model, we supplement the existing thermodynamic tables with new values for the relative apparent and partial molar heat capacities for KCl solutions. It is likely that the new tables contain the most reliable values available for these heat capacity quantities.
