Solution enthalpies of 1,3,6,8-tetraazatricyclo[,8]dodecane, TATD, in water were measured as a function of molal concentration at 278.15, 288.15, 298.15, and 308.15 K. Solvation enthalpies and the heat capacity of solution were calculated. The results show a structuring of solvent around the solute and the observed temperature dependency of the enthalpy of solvation permits the classification of TATD as being a “mixed solute”. The Scaled Particle Theory was employed for analyzing the individual contributions to the solvation enthalpy.
