The surface tension (excess surface free energy) of water is an important factor in many biological and chemical systems. It is often invoked to correlate or explain the low solubility of nonpolar compounds in water as well as the so-called hydrophobic effect of nonpolar molecules aggregating in water. While water's surface tension is not easily obtained(More)
The Barclay-Butler (B-B) rule, which states that a linear relationship exists between the standard deltaH(vap) and deltaS(vap) for simple, non-associated liquids and their solutions, has been used to distinguish associated ('abnormal') liquids from simple ('normal') liquids. The exact character of the B-B plots depends on the standard states chosen for the(More)
