The potentiometric titration has been used to measure dissociation constants of fifteen substituted arenesulphonamides of general formula XC6H4SO2NH2 (or X2C6H3SO2NH2) in acetone, 1,2-dichloroethane, tetramethylene sulphone, pyridine, and mixtures water-ethanol (25, 50, 75, 90% by vol. of the organic component), water-dimethylformamide (25, 50, 75% by vol.), water-acetone (25% by vol.), and water-2-methoxyethanol (80% by wt.). The results are compared with those published earlier for water, methanol, ethanol, dimethylformamide, dimethyl sulphoxide, and acetonitrile.
