ABSTRACT The refractive indices n and surface tensions σ of liquid binary mixtures {xc-(CH2)4O + (1 − x)CH3(CH2)mCH3,m = (4 to 8)} were measured at T = 298.15 K over the whole concentration range. The densities ρ of {xc-(CH2)4O + (1 − x)CH3(CH2)8CH3} were also measured at this temperature. The data are discussed in terms of molecular interactions and the chain length of the n -alkane. The Lorentz–Lorenz, Dale–Gladstone, Eykman, Oster, Arago–Biot, and Newton equations were used to predict the excess molar volumes from the refractometric measurements, as well as a modified Eykman equation with a parameter obtained for each binary system from data for dn / dT , dρ / dT , and ρ for the pure components. The most accurate predictions were those of the Oster and parametrized Eykman equations. Surface tensions predicted from measured densities using the Sugden equation and the assumption of mole-wise additivity for parachor were more accurate (between 2 per cent and 7 per cent) than predictions based on refractive index obtained by combining the Sugden equation and the definition of molar refraction R and adopting the additional assumption of mole-wise additivity forR .

    ABSTRACT: Certain combustion engine technologies can imply the formation of a liquid film on the walls of the combustion chamber, which produces significant pollutant emission. In this context, experimental study of the flame/film interaction is necessary, which in turn necessitates the measurement of the liquid film thickness. For this purpose, a low-coherence interferometry technique has been used in a specific configuration involving reactive flow and, consequently, temperature gradients, which contribute to measurement errors because of the thermo-optic coefficient. In the present work, in order to estimate these errors, the group refractive indexes of hexane, heptane and octane were measured by low-coherence interferometry according to the temperature at a wavelength of 1310 nm. The comparison of the thermo-optic coefficients indicated a good concordance between experimental data and the application of models derived from electromagnetic theory. The knowledge of these coefficients permits the estimation of a fairly reasonable film thickness uncertainty.

    ABSTRACT: RESUMEN El volumen de exceso molar de 30 mezclas binarias que contienen líquidos iónicos de imidazolio con diferentes solventes moleculares: (metanol, etanol, 1-propanol, 2-propanol, acetona, 2-butanona, 2-pentanona, acetato de metilo, acetato de etilo, acetato de butilo, carbonato de dimetilo, carbonato de dietilo, nitrometano, 1,3-dicloropropano y etilenglicol), se predice desde datos de índice de refracción, usando 3 tipos de métodos acoplados con diferentes reglas de mezcla para el cálculo del índice de refracción: Lorentz-Lorenz, Dale-Gladstone, Eykman, Arago-Biot, Newton y Oster. En estos sistemas las interacciones moleculares y fuerzas intermoleculares durante la mezcla provocan desviaciones positivas o negativas del comportamiento ideal. Los resultados obtenidos son analizados en términos de la naturaleza del líquido iónico y solvente molecular. Palabras clave: Volumen de exceso molar, índice de refracción, predicción, líquido iónico, solvente molecular. ABSTRACT The excess molar volumes of 30 binary mixtures containing ionic liquids of imidazolium with different molecular solvents: (methanol, ethanol, propan-1-ol, propan-2-ol, acetone, 2-butanone, 2-pentanone, methyl acetate, ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, dimethyl carbonate, diethyl carbonate, nitromethane, 1,3-dichloropropane and ethylene glycol), were predicted from the refractive index data, using 3 types of methods coupled with several different mixing rules for refractive index calculations: Lorentz-Lorenz, Dale-Gladstone, Eykman, Arago-Biot, Newton and Oster. In these systems, molecular interactions and intermolecular forces during mixing produce positive or negative deviations from ideal behavior. The results are analyzed in terms of the nature of ionic liquid and molecular solvent.
