In a similar way, it is relatively easy to show that the overall entropy of mixing is given by
In the ideal case, the entropy is made up of the entropy of fusion of the additive and the geometric entropy of mixing, and [chi] is temperature independent.
E] is the excess entropy of mixing and can be derived from the plot of [chi]T against T.
f], implying a negative heat of mixing, and the excess entropy of mixing is slightly negative.
In fact, the incompatibility of the phosphate with the polymer should lead to even lower solubility, but it is partially offset by a positive excess entropy of mixing.
