Abstract

The measurements on the activity and solvation of H2O in hydrate melts and aqueous electrolyte solutions containing various metal chlorides were carried out by a vapor pressure measurement using a transpiration method and 1H quantitative NMR (1H qNMR). The electrolyte concentration dependence of the detection rate of H2O by 1H qNMR reflected the change of the hydration structure of the first hydration shell, and the activity of H2O by the vapor pressure measurement clearly showed the change of the network structure of water including the first and second hydration spheres. The correlation between the enthalpy and entropy of vaporization showed the existence of different kinds of water-cation interactions.
