General Information about the Abraham Solvation Parameters

What Are the Abraham Solvation Coefficients?

The quantitative solute properties calculated by ACD/Absolv are:

  • A—Hydrogen bonding acidity of solute (α2H)
  • B and BO—Hydrogen bonding basicity parameters (β2H–B and β2O –BO)
  • S—Polarity/polarizability (π2H)
  • L—Partitioning coefficient between gas phase and hexadecane (logL16)
  • V—McGowan volume characteristic (Vx)
  • E—Excessive molar refraction (R2)

How Are Abraham Solvation Parameters Used?

The Abraham solvation equations find widespread use in environmental chemistry where these simple models can provide quick estimates of the behavior of new compounds. The solvation parameters (A, B, BO, E, S, L, and V, defined above) characterize the hydrogen bonding potential of a compound. They are essential characteristics of solutes and key determinants of many biological properties.
