Xanthate characteristics with relation to its hydrocarbon chain length has been considered. The free energy associated with one -CH2 group in homologous xanthates was calculated based on the standard redox potential of X2/X couple and solubility products of transient metal xanthates. The estimated free energy using each method was found to be 690–920 cal and 799–824 cal, respectively, and was in good agreement with that for various homologues.
