This research article reports the experimental results of the density, viscosity, refractive index, and speed of sound analysis of binary mixtures of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) + 1-phenylethanone (acetophenone) and + 1,4-dimethylbenzene (para-xylene) over the whole composition range at 313.15, 318.15, 323.15, and 328.15 K and at atmospheric pressure. The excess molar volumes (), viscosity deviations (), excess Gibbs energy of activation (), deviations in isentropic compressibility (), deviations in speed of sound (), and deviations in the molar refraction () were calculated from the experimental data. The computed quantities were fitted to the Redlich-Kister equation to derive the coefficients and estimate the standard error values. The viscosities have also been correlated with two, and three-parameter models, that is, Heric correlation, McAllister model, and Grunberg-Nissan correlation, respectively.
