This article comments on mathematical errors pertaining to published equation coefficients for the modified Apelblat and for the polynomial equation based on the Combined Jouyban-Acree and modified Apelblat models.
Abstract: Errors are found in the mathematical correlation based on the combined Jouyban-Acree and Modified Apelblat model for describing the variation in the mole fraction solubility of cefpiramide with temperature and solvent composition for the binary aqueous-ethanol solvent system. The equation coefficents given by Tang and coworkers, when substituted into the model equation, do not yield the authors' calculated mole fraction solubilities of cefpiramide.
This article provides a commentary on several sets of reported curve-fit parameters for the Modified Apelblat model that do not correctly back-calculate the observed solubility behavior of L-norvaline in the binary aqueous-alcohol solvent mixtures.
This article provides a commentary on the published equation coefficients for mathematically describing the solubility behavior of D-sorbitol in binary acetonitrile + ethanol solvent mixtures using the modified Apelblat, Combined Nearly Ideal Binary Solvent/Redlich-Kister (CNIBS/R-K) and Jouyban-Acree models.
This article comments on activity coefficients based on a thermodynamic relationship that failed to properly take into account the solid phase transition that both caffeine and gallic acid exhibited prior to melting.
This article sets out an equation for partition of 87 neutral molecules from water to o-nitrophenyl octyl ether, NPOE, an equation for partition of the 87 neutral molecules and 21 ionic species from water to NPOE, and an equation for partition of 87 neutral molecules from the gas phase to NPOE.
