Abstract

The ultrasonic velocity, density and viscosity measurements were carried out for the mixtures of benzamide with Propan-2-ol, butan-1-ol, 1-pentanol and n-hexanal in 1,4-dioxan at 303, 308 and 313K. The derived acoustic and thermodynamic parameters namely adiabatic compressibility, free length, free volume, internal pressure, viscous relaxation time and Gibbs free energy were evaluated with a view to investigate the nature of molecular interaction.The obtained results support the occurance of complex formation through intermolecular hydrogen bonding in these ternary liquid mixtures.
