Speeds of Sound and Excess Molar Volume for Binary Mixture of 1,4Dioxane with 1Heptanol at Five Temperatures
Abstract
Speed of sound and density data for dilute liquid solutions of cyclic ether 1,4dioxane with 1heptanol was obtained using the AntonPaar DSA 5000 at five temperatures = (298.15, 303.15, 308.15, 313.15, and 318.15) K at atmospheric pressure. The excess parameters were calculated from experimental data and fitted with a RedlichKister polynomial function and concluded the presence of weak molecular interactions.
1. Introduction
Cyclic ethers are considered some of the most important chemicals in the industry. Particularly, branched ethers (such as 2methoxy2methylpropane or MTBE, 2ethoxy2methylpropane or ETBE, 2,2′oxybis[propane] or DIPE, and 2methoxy2methylbutane or TAME) have extensively been used as oxygenates in gasoline production. Cyclic ethers, in turn (e.g., 1,3dioxolane, 1,4dioxane, 1,3,5trioxane, tetrahydrofuran, and tetrahydropyran), are frequently used as solvents in chemical and electrochemical processes, likewise as basic reagents (i.e., monomer) for ringopening polymerization, and for the production of other chemical intermediaries. 1Heptanol is often utilized in cardiac electrophysiology experiments to block gap junctions and increase axial resistance between myocytes. Increasing axial resistance will decrease conduction velocity and increase the heart’s condition to reentrant excitation and sustained arrhythmias. It has a pleasant smell and is employed in cosmetics for its fragrance.
Speeds of sound and deviations in isentropic compressibilities have been previously reported by the author in their earlier studies on 1,4dioxane + 1butanol [1] at five temperatures = (298.15, 303.15, 308.15, 313.15 and 318.15) K. In the continuation of investigation on excess thermodynamics functions of cyclic ethers in polar and nonpolar solvents, authors are reporting the experimental values, deviations in isentropic compressibility (), excess molar volumes (), excess free length (), excess acoustic impedance (), and excess sound velocity () for the binary system 1,4dioxane + 1heptanol. The parameters are estimated using standard equations that are reported by many authors [2–5]. These excess parameters are discussed in the focus of intermolecular interactions present in the mixture at = (298.15, 303.15, 308.15, 313.15, and 318.15) K using AntonPaar. At the end for the best fit of the result RedlichKister coefficients and their related standard deviations are enclosed.
2. Experimental Procedure
In the present study the chemicals 1,4dioxane and 1heptanol are purchased from Sigma Aldrich chemical company, their mass fraction purities is >0.998. To begin with for the measurements purpose all prepared solutions were done at the same particular temperature, also changing the temperature the measurements were repeated.
Speeds of sound, , densities, , of the pure compounds, and their mixtures were obtained with an AntonPaar DSA5000 vibrating tube densimeter and sound analyzer. All controls, adjustments, and checks were done using manufacturer’s software installed in the device. A computer connected to the U tube densimeter enabled us to read the raw data from the device memory and to perform the consequent evaluation. The temperature was automatically kept constant within ±0.01 K. The precision of the speed of sound and density measurements is ±0.1 ms^{−1} and ±3 × 10^{−5} gcm^{−3}, respectively. The uncertainty of the speed of sound measurements is ±1 m·s^{−1} while the uncertainty for the density is ±10^{−5} g·cm^{−3}. Calibration of the apparatus was carried out with air and degassed doubledistilled water. Experimental values of the speed of sound of the pure compounds at five temperatures, along with literature values at temperature range of 298.15 to 318.15 K, are reported in Table 1. Mole fractions of these samples were determined by measuring the mass of each component with a precision balance Sartorius, model CP 225D, ±0.01 mg.

3. Results and Discussion
The derived excess parameters such as , , , , and at above five temperature are summarized in Tables 2 and 2. From the tables, it is observed that, the experimental speed of sound values of the binary liquid mixture decreases up to the mole fraction of 0.4090 (at 298.15, 303.15 K), 0.5244 (at 308.15, 313.15, 318.15 K) and then increase with increasing mole fraction of 1,4dioxane, whereas the density increases with increasing mole fraction. This indicates that there is a dipoleinduced dipole interaction between component molecules [3, 16].

The experimental data measured values of speed of sound () and density () various thermoacoustical parameters: isentropic compressibility: molar volume: where , intermolecular free length: where is Jacobson’s constant, temperature dependent, specific acoustic impedance: The strength of interaction between the component molecules of binary liquid system is well reflected in the excess functions from ideality. The excess thermodynamic properties such as , , , , and have been calculated using the following equation: where and are mole fractions of 1,4dioxane and 1heptanol, respectively.
Further, the excess parameters were fitted to RedlichKister polynomial equation to estimate the adjustable parameters: Using leastsquares regression method, the coefficients are obtained by fitting the above equation to the experimental values. The optimum number of coefficients are ascertained from an examination of the variation in standard deviation equation as where is the number of data points and is the degree of fitting (i.e. number of coefficients) these values are reported in Table 3.

Generally, the values of the excess functions , , and depend upon several physical and chemical contributions [3, 17]. The physical contribution depends mainly on two factors, namely,(a)the dispersion forces or weak dipoledipole interaction that leads to positive values,(b)the geometrical effect allowing the fitting of molecules of two different sizes into each other’s structure resulting in negative values.
The chemical contributions include breaking up of the associates present in pure liquids, resulting in positive , , and . In the present mixture the graphical representations for deviation isentropic compressibilities (), excess molar volumes (), and excess free length () are positive, presented in Figures 1, 2, and 3.The positive values reveal that there are present weak interactions in the mixture.
Figure 4 shows that the excess acoustic impedance becomes more negative at 0.5244 mole fraction of the binary mixture. The negative values of [1, 18] indicate that the breaking of hydrogen bond in 1heptanol leads to weak packing of the structure. Also, Figure 5 shows values exhibiting negative deviations over the entire composition range of 1,4dioxane in the mixture at all five temperatures studied. The negative deviations of and suggest that dispersion forces are operative in the system. Similar reports are made by Ali et al. [19]. Further, Bahadur et al. [20] and Sumathi and Govindarajan [3]. According to their reports the negative values of indicates the decrease in the strength of interaction between the molecules in the mixture. In the present work the negative deviations of and suggests the presence of weak interaction dispersive forces between the unlike molecules.
4. Conclusion

The derived acoustical parameters and their excess parameters , , and are positive and , are negative which hint to the presence of weak dispersive forces between the component molecules in the mixture at all five temperatures studied.
