The adsorption behavior of 1,1,2,2-tetrahydrohenicosafluorododecanol, CF3(CF2)(9)(CH2)(2)OH(FC12OH), . . .
The adsorption behavior of 1,1,2,2-tetrahydrohenicosafluorododecanol, CF3(CF2)(9)(CH2)(2)OH(FC12OH), at the hexane/water interface was investigated in both the absence and presence of the deposit by measuring the interfacial tension gamma of its hexane solution against water as a function of pressure p and molality m(1) at 298.15 K. It was concluded that a breakpoint on the gamma vs p and gamma vs m(1) curves in a very low concentration region shows a first-order phase transition from the gaseous to the condensed state in the adsorbed film. It was found that the volume change of adsorption per mole of FC12OH is larger than that of 1,1,2,2-tetrahydroheptadecafluorodecanol, CF3(CF2)(7)(CH2)(2)OH(FC10OH). Then it was suggested that the increase in the partial molar volume of alcohol with increasing fluorocarbon chain length is larger in the solution than in the interface because of the weak mutual interaction of the fluorocarbon chain with hexane molecules. Furthermore, another breakpoint due to the solubility of FC12OH in hexane was observed on the gamma vs p and gamma vs m(1) curves in a high concentration and pressure region. A small value of partial molar volume change accompanied by the adsorption from the solid substantiates our view that the condensed state of the adsorbed film resembles the solid state.
