This chapter is devoted to the presentation of numerical values for the solvation thermodynamics of some specific systems. The emphasis is on the wide range of systems for which the concept of solvation may be applied, ranging from hard spheres to aqueous protein solutions. We note again that this range is infinitely wider than the range of systems that can be studied by the conventional concept of solvation. Thus the systems treated in Sections (2.4), (2.11), and (2.15) are totally inaccessible, whereas the systems treated in Sections (2.5), (2.12), (2.13), (2.14), and (2.17) are almost entirely inaccessible from the traditional approach. In a few cases a qualitative interpretation of various results and trends is attempted.
