Experimental results on density and viscosity of binary mixtures of butyronitrile with pentane, hexane, heptane, and octane are presented at 298.15, 303.15, 308.15 K and atmospheric pressure over the whole mixture composition scale 0 to 1. From these data, excess molar volume VE, deviation in viscosity ∆η and excess Gibb’s free energy of activation flow ∆G*E have been calculated. The viscosity data were correlated with Grunberg–Nissan, Hind and KendallMonroe models.
