Application of Acd/Labs 12 Program for Determination of Conditions for Experimental Membrane Extraction of Pesticides
MetadataShow full item record
This paper analyzes the conditions for membrane extraction of pesticides using ACD/LABS 12 program. The program contains a large database of more than 2000 compounds and their ionized species, for determining the pKa, further analysis includes 600 new compounds confirmed by Hammetts equation, which gives more precise values for log D and solubility. The 16 pesticides of different classes (organophosphates, carbamates, carbamidas, neonicotinoids etc.) and polarities commonly used in Serbia were examined. The program is used to calculate log D, pKa and solubility at different pH values for the mixture of pesticides. Based on the calculated values, the conditions for the extraction of pesticides in water using two-phase liquid liquid membrane extraction were optimized.
