Excess Properties of Alcohol - Water Systems at 298.15 K


Abstract: Dielectric constants \varepsilon, viscosities \eta, refractive indices n and densities d have been measured over the entire mole fraction range for the water - methyl, ethyl, n-propyl alcohol binary systems at 298.15 K. From the experimental data excess dielectric constants \varepsilon^E, excess viscosities \eta^E and Kirkwood correlation factors g_k have been calculated and studied. Their behaviour suggests the existence of intermolecular interactions and plotted curves show that excess dielectric constant and g_k values decrease with the increasing of carbon atom number, while excess viscosity increases.
