Problematic Borate results

Recommended Posts

Attached please find my calculations of log K for ulexite and searlesite. I'm troubled by the fact that Ulexite log K is higher than that of Borax even though it is less soluble. Some solubility data is present for Ulexite. Checking log K calculated from delta G of reaction against a K calculated from solubility does not yield good agreement. I feel like I am overlooking something. Haven't found any solubility data on searlesite so nothing to check against. Data are yours to use if you'd like however I am still seeking correction or confirmation.

Happy modeling!
