The partial molal volumes, V, of [M(edta)]2− and [M(hedta)(H2O)] (M=Mn(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II) and H3hedta=N-(2-hydroxyethyl)ethylenediamine-N,N′,N′ -triacetic acid) and two free ligands, edta4− and hedta3−, have been determined from density measurements at 25 °C. From the results for V, the volume changes for the complex formation of [M(edta)]2− and [M(hedta)(H2O)], ΔV, were estimated. The values of ΔV, for [M(edta)]2− (32.8 to 45.8 cm3 mol−1) and for [M(hedta)(H2O)] (25.2 to 36.5 cm3 mol−1) were large, positive ones, and a linear relationship between ΔV and ΔS was observed for these metal chelate ions.
