The density and refractive index (RI) for four binary liquid mixtures: diethyl malonate + dimethylformamide (DEM+DMF), diethyl malonate + Hexane (DEM+HEX), diethyl malonate + tetrahydrofuran (DEM+THF), diethyl malonate + 1,4-dioxane (DEM+DO) have been measured. The experimental values are compared with those calculated from Lorentz-Lorentz, Heller, Newton and Gladstone -Dale mixing rules.
