Partition coefficients of fourteen organic compounds were determined in 10 or 20 different polymer/polymer aqueous two-phase systems (ATPS) all at physiological pH (0.15 M NaCl in 0.01 M phosphate buffer, pH 7.4). Solute-specific coefficients characterizing different types of solute-water interactions for the compounds examined were determined by the multiple linear regression analysis. It is shown that (i) the partition behavior for the polar organic compounds is affected not only by dipole-dipole and hydrogen-bond interactions with aqueous environment but, notably, in most cases also by dipole-ion interactions; (ii) it is possible to predict partition behavior for compounds with pre-determined solutespecific coefficients in ATPS with characterized solvent features; and (iii) linear combinations of the solute-specific coefficients for the organic compounds might be useful in the development of quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) analysis to describe their odor detection threshold.
