Title

Viscosity, Refractive Index, and Surface Tension of Multicomponent Systems: Mathematical Representation and Estimation from Data for Binary Systems

Abstract

An equation previously developed for estimation of the excess thermodynamic properties of multicomponent systems from binary mixing data has been applied to other physical properties through extrathermodynamic properties such as the excess Gibbs free energy of activation for viscous flow, molar refractivity, and exess surface free energy. This equation provides reasonably accurate predictions for viscosity, refractive index and surface tension of ternary and quaternary systems, given the properties of the various binary combinations of the components. The equation also serves quite well as a point-of-departure for mathematical representation of experimental data, in that all of the data considered could be represented within experimental uncertainty with the aid of no more than one adjustable parameter for each multicomponent system. © 1983 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
