Abstract: Partition coefficients of amino acids, including glycine, alanine, 2-aminobutyric acid, valine, leucine, threonine, methinoine, tryptophan and tyrosine, in [C(n)mim]Br (n=4, 6, 8)+K(2)HPO(4) aqueous two-phase systems (ATPSs) have been determined, and the relative hydrophobicity of the equilibrium phases in the ionic liquids-based aqueous two-phase systems has been characterized by the Gibbs energies of transfer for methylene group from the bottom salt-rich phase to the top ionic liquid-rich phase. Based on the…
