    • Abstract


      The heats of mixing ofn-butyl amine with methanol andn-propanol have been determined at 30° C and the enthalpies of alcohol-amine complex formation have been calculated by thermochemical cycle. The enthalpies of complex formation of butyl amine with methanol andn-propanol were found to be-44.3 kJ/mole and-39.4 kj/mole respectively. The heats of mixing of synthetically prepared 1:1 molar mixtures of n-butyl amine with methanol, ethanol andn-propanol withn-hexane have also been determined at 30° C. The enthalpy of amine-alcohol complexes was obtained from the partial molar heats of dissociation of the complexes inn-hexane. The values agree with those obtained by the thermochemical cycle method.
