Interactions of ethyl acetoacetate with some (C4-C9) aliphatic ketones at 298.15 K: insight from volumetric studies
MetadataShow full item record
Density of binary mixtures of ethyl acetoacetate (EAA) with straight chain aliphatic ketones butan-2-one, pentan-2-one, hexan-2-one, heptan-2-one, octan-2-one and nonan-2-one were measured at varying compositions of the ethyl acetoacetate at 298.15 K. The derived properties such as excess molar volumes, VmE, of the binary mixtures were calculated from the experimental density data of the mixtures. The calculated excess molar volumes were fitted into the Redlich-Kister polynomial to obtain the fitting parameters and standard deviations. The excess molar volumes of the binary mixtures investigated were negative over the entire range of composition. The negative values were attributed to dipole-dipole interactions between the unlike molecules of mixtures than those between the like molecules of the pure solvents. The observed negative values of the excess molar volumes for the studied binary mixtures were discussed in terms of intermolecular interactions which were present in the mixtures.
