Thermodynamic properties of isomeric pentanols under elevated pressures determined by the acoustic method

  • M. Dzida


Three isomeric pentanols were studied: pentan-1-ol, 2-methyl-1-buta- nol, and 2-methyl-2-butanol. Isobaric heat capacities and internal pressure at pressures up to 100 MPa and temperatures ranging from 293 K to 318 K were determined by the acoustic method. In calculations the measured speeds of sound as function of temperature and pressure together with densities as function of temperature under atmospheric pressure and the literature isobaric heat capacities for the atmospheric pressure were used. To this end, the method, based on the suggestion of Davis and Gordon [1] was applied. The results obtained show that the effect of pressure on and the values of isobaric heat capacity and internal presure of 2-methyl-2-butanol is higher than that of pentan-1-ol, 2-methyl-1-butanol over the whole pressure range. That facilitates telling 2-methyl-2-butanol from pentan-1-ol and 2-methyl-1-butanol.
