heat of dilution

heat of dilution

[′hēt əv də′lü·shən]
(physical chemistry)
The increase in enthalpy accompanying the addition of a specified amount of solvent to a solution of constant pressure. Also known as integral heat of dilution; total heat of dilution.
The increase in enthalpy when an infinitesimal amount of solvent is added to a solution at constant pressure. Also known as differential heat of dilution.

To determine the heat of dilution of HSA and zinc chloride solution, titration experiments of zinc chloride solution injected into buffer solution and buffer solution into HSA solution were performed.
It was illustrated that the binding of zinc ion to HSA is an exothermic process, where heat of dilution of the zinc ion dissolved in Tris-HCl buffer solution has been deducted.
The heat of dilution of the SDS solution was measured as described above except lysozyme was excluded.
