Kamlet-taft solvatochromic parameters for 25 glycol ether solvents and glycol ether aqueous solutions.

The Kamlet-Taft parameters for 25 glycol ethers and their aqueous solutions were measured. Values for the three Kamlet-Taft parameters: the hydrogen-bond donor ability, hydrogen-bond acceptor ability, and the dipolarity/polarizability, as well as the index of refraction, were determined for each pure glycol ether and each aqueous glycol solution. A correlation matrix between other known solvent parameters and the measured Kamlet-Taft values revealed only one correlation, suggesting that the three measured Kamlet-Taft parameters for the glycol ethers are independent solvent descriptors. Last, trends in the measured Kamlet-Taft values were related to functional group modifications to the basic glycol ether structure.
