Measurement and Correlation of Solubility of Calcium‑l‑lactate Pentahydrate in Ethanol + Water and Acetone + Water Systems

The solubility of calcium-l-lactate pentahydrate (CLLP) in binary ethanol + water and acetone + water solvent mixtures was measured in the temperature range of 278.15 K to 313.15 K by using a synthetic method. The solubility of CLLP increases with increasing temperature, whereas it decreases with the increase of the initial mole fraction of ethanol or acetone. The solubility data were correlated by using the modified Apelblat equation, the CNIBS/R-K equation, and the hybrid model, respectively. It was found that the modified Apelblat equation could give better correlation results both in ethanol aqueous solutions and in acetone aqueous solutions. The dissolution enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs energy change of dissolution of CLLP in these solvent mixtures were obtained by using the modified van’t Hoff equation.
