Abstract:  Osmotic vapor pressure and density measurements have been made for binary aqueous urea solutions (0.1m-1m) and ternary aqueous solutions containing three different concentrations of 18-crown-6 (0.1, 0.2 and 0.5m) at 298.15K. The molal activity coefficients of urea, water and 18-crown-6 in binary as well as in ternary solutions have been calculated. Thermodynamic equilibrium constant, salting coefficient and molecular interaction parameters have been determined. The results are explained in terms of 1:4 stoichiometric complex formation with urea at the lowest concentration of 18-crown-6 having a small equilibrium constant value. At higher 18-crown-6 concentrations, water forms hydrogen bond with crown ring oxygen atoms and hydrophobic interaction between 18-crown-6 molecules outweighs the interaction of urea with 18-crown-6 molecules, resulting in salting out of urea molecules.
