 Title    A Near-Infrared Spectroscopic Investigation of Water in Solutions with Proline, Glycinebetaine, Glycerol and Albumin  
 Abstract    The (v2 + v3) com bination band o f water has been investigated in aqueous solutions o f proline, glycinebetaine and glycerol and in a three component solution with each o f these substances and albumin. It is shown that the hydrogen bonding strength between the water protons and proline or betaine is higher than between water and glycerol. Betaine exhibits a higher affinity versus the oxygen o f water than does proline. The water binding capacity o f pure proline solutions is unchanged in a three-com ponent solu­ tion with albumin. Proline neither enhances nor reduces the solubility o f this highly soluble pro­ tein. In contrast, in a three-com ponent solution with betaine, the solubility o f both betaine and al­ bum in is reduced. It is assumed that these solute particles com pete for the sam e binding position on the water m olecule. Concentrated glycerol solutions with very low water concentrations dissolve a considerable am ount o f albumin, which points to the fact that the protein must be partly dis­ solved in glycerol itself.
