Surface tension and density of mixtures of m-xylene plus n-alkane at 293.15 K: Analysis under the extended Langmuir and Shereshefsky models
Surface tension (sigma) and density (rho) for {m-xylene + n-pentane, hexane, heptarie and octane} at the temperature 293.15 K and pressure 1.013 bar have been determined as a function of mole fraction. In order to analyze the surface tension behavior, the extended Langmuir (EL) and Shereshefsky models were used and parameters of the models were obtained for these mixtures. The standard Gibbs energy of adsorption (-Delta G degrees) was calculated using both models. The free energy change of replacing one mole of solute with one mole of solvent in surface region (Delta G(S)) and the excess number of molecular layers of solute in the surface region were calculated using Shereshefsky model. The magnitude of Delta G(S) and (-Delta G degrees) was discussed in terms of nature and type of intermolecular interactions in binary mixtures. The RedlichKister polynomial equation was fitted to each of the experimental surface tension deviation (delta sigma) and excess molar volume (v(E)) results. Using the resulting polynomial equations, the surface tension deviations and the excess molar volumes (delta sigma, v(E)) were calculated over the entire composition range. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd.
