Molecular associations in alcohol-methyl methacrylate mixtures
Molecular association between alcohols (1-propanol, 1-butanol, sec-butanol, tert-butanol, 1-pentanol, 1-heptanol, 1-octanol, and 1-decanol) with methyl methacrylate has been studied in n-heptane, CCl4, and benzene at 298 K using FTIR spectroscopic and dielectric methods. The result obtained from both methods indicates only the existence of most likely 1:1 complex formation between the alcohol and the methyl methacrylate in these systems. The alkyl chain length of alcohol and the solvent used plays a significant role on the strength of hydrogen bond (OH:O=C) determined on the basis of spectral and dielectric parameters.
