Krossing VIP-Paper II: The Ideal Ionic Liquid Salt Bridge for Direct Determination of Gibbs Energies of Transfer of Single Ions, Part II: Evaluation of the Role of Ion Solvation and Ion Mobilities

Zweiteiler: In der “Angewandten Chemie” wurden zwei Publikationen eines Projektes back-to-back veröffentlicht! Teil 2 beschreibt die ersten experimentellen Ergebnisse und bestätigt damit das in Teil 1 vorgestellte Konzept. Die Bestimmung von Einzelionen-Transferenthalpien ohne Verwendung von außerthermodynamischen Annahmen ist zum Greifen nah.

An important intermediate goal to evaluate our concept for the assumption-free determination of single-ion Gibbs transfer energies ΔtrG°(i, S1⟶ S2) is presented. We executed the crucial steps a) and b) of the methodology, described in Part I of this treatise, exemplarily for Ag+ and Cl with S1 being water and S2 being acetonitrile. The experiments showed that virtually all parts of the liquid junction potentials (LJPs) at both ends of a salt bridge cancel, if the bridge electrolyte is an “ideal” ionic liquid, that is, one with nearly identical diffusion of anion and cation. This ideality holds for [N2225]+[NTf2] in the pure IL, but also in water and acetonitrile solution. Electromotive force measurements of solvation cells between S1and S2 demonstrated Nernstian behavior for Ag+ concentration cells and constant like cell potentials for solutions with five tested Ag+ counterions.
