Osmotic coefficients and water activities for the Li2B4O7+LiCl+H2O system have been measured at T=273.15 K by the isopiestic method, using an improved apparatus. Two types of osmotic coefficients, phi (S) and phi (E), were determined. phi (S) is based on the stoichiometric molalities of the solute Li2B4O7(aq), and phi (E) is based on equilibrium molalities from consideration of the equilibrium speciation into H3BO3,B(OH) (4) (-) and B3O3(OH) (4) (-) . The stoichiometric equilibrium constants K (m) for the aqueous speciation reactions were estimated. Two types of representations of the osmotic coefficients for the Li2B4O7+LiCl+H2O system are presented with ion-interaction models based on Pitzer's equations with minor modifications: model (I) represents the phi (S) data with six parameters based on considering the ion-interactions between three ionic species of Li+, Cl-, and B4O (7) (2-) and model (II) for represents the phi (E) data based on considering the equilibrium speciation. The parameters of models (I) and (II) are presented. The standard deviations for the two models are 0.0152 and 0.0298, respectively. Model (I) was more satisfactory than model (II) for representing the isopiestic data.
