Author(s): Dikko A. B, Eke E
Abstract: The studies of, refractive indices and surface tension are being increasingly used as tools for investigation of the properties of pure components and the nature of intermolecular interactions between the liquid mixture constituents. Refractive indices (nD and surface tension (Ïƒ) have been measured for the ternary liquid mixture of 1-propanol + ethanol over the entire composition range at 313.15 K. Both refractive index and surface tension increased linearly with increase in 1-propanol added to ethanol.
