BAHADUR, Indra  and  DEENADAYALU, Nirmala. Densities and excess molar volume for the ternary systems (1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium methyl sulphate + nitromethane + methanol or ethanol or 1-propanol) at T = (303.15 and 313.15) K. S.Afr.j.chem. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.66, pp.00-00. ISSN 1996-840X.

The densities of the ternary systems containing the ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium methyl sulphate ([BMIM]+[MeSO4]-) were determined. The ternary systems studied were ([BMIM]+[MeSO4]- + nitromethane + methanol or ethanol or 1-propanol) at the temperatures (303.15 and 313.15) K. The ternary excess molar volumes were calculated from the experimental densities at each temperature, being negative for all mole fractions of the ionic liquid. The minimum ternary excess molar volumes increase with an increase in temperature for the systems ([BMIM]+[MeSO4]- + nitromethane + methanol or ethanol), and decrease for the system ([BMIM]+ [MeSO4]- + nitromethane + 1-propanol). The results are interpreted in terms of the alcohol chain length and the intermolecular interactions.

Keywords : Density; excess molar volume; ionic liquid; alcohol; nitromethane.
