    • Abstract


      The excess free energy, enthalpy and entropy of mixing of isomeric butanols withn-heptane determined at 55°C were found to be positive due to the breaking of hydrogen bonds. In the case ofn-butanol the excess entropy was negative beyond the concentration rangex2>0.4. The data on excess free energy and enthalpy of mixing could be well represented by the Redlich-Kister equation. An attempt to calculate excess enthalpy from temperature dependence of excess free energy for iso and sec-butanol systems has been made. The results are discussed in the light of the idealised model.
