A differential pH and thermal titrimeter has been used to determine the ionization constants of EDTA and EGTA as well as their calcium complexes. The intrinsic heat of binding is a constant for the pH range 2-11.5 for both substances and is found to be -5.4 kcal mol for EDTA and -7.9 kcal mol-1 for EGTA. The binding constants evaluated by fitting to the potentiometric curves and expressed as the log are 10.25 and 11.0, respectively. These values compare reasonably well to those reported in the… CONTINUE READING
