Physical Chemistry of Solutions


The temperature dependences of the contraction of water solutions of monoatomic alcohols are studied. The analysis is performed using theoretical concepts developed earlier on the basis of a virial expansion of the equation of state for solutions. The contraction and the character of its temperature dependence can differ substantially in both value and sign, depending on the combinations molecular parameters. The available experimental data are compared.
