    • Abstract

       

      The enthalpies of mixing of four isomeric butanols with acetonitrile were determined at 30°C by a Calvet type microcalorimeter. All the four systems showed endothermic behaviour. The enthalpies of hydrogen bonded complex formation were determined by means of a thermochemical cycle. 1-butanol formed a stronger bonding (−13kJ/mole) than the other three isomers (−11.20kJ/mole). The strength of the H-bond of alcohol with C ≡ N is much less than that with C-N.
