The selective solvation of Ag(I) bromate and iodate was studied in dimethyl sulfoxide–water mixtures at 30 °C by solubility and EMF measurements. The solubility of silver bromate decreases down to XDMSO=0.2 and thereafter increases with addition of dimethyl sulfoxide, the solubility of silver iodate continuously decreasing under the same conditions. The transfer free energy of silver cation decreases while that of halate ions increases with the addition of dimethyl sulfoxide. The solvent transport number, Δ, passes through a maximum around XDMSO=0.5 in both cases. These results were interpreted in terms of a heteroselective solvation of both the salts, the silver ion being preferentially solvated by dimethyl sulfoxide and the halate ions selectively hydrated by water in the mixtures.
