ACTIVATION PARAMETERS AND EXCESS THERMODYANAMIC FUNCTIONS OF HYDROXAMIC ACIDS IN ACETONE - WATER MIXTURE AT 303.15 K AND 313.15 K: A VISCOMETRIC APPROACH

Ajita Dixit, Rama Pande

Abstract


Experimental values of density and viscosity of N-arylsubstituted hydroxamic acids were evaluated at
T = 303.15 K and 313.15 K in acetone-water mixture as a function of their concentration. The properties of solutes were obtained as an intercept of plots C vs η of solutions. Applying these data, viscosity-B-coefficients, activation parameters (Δμ10≠) and (Δμ20≠) and excess thermodynamic functions, viz., excess molar volume (VE), excess viscosity, ηE and excess molar free energy of activation of flow, (GE) were calculated. The value of interaction parameter, d, of Grunberg and Nissan expression have also been calculated and reported. Analysis of these data suggests that specific interactions are present in the system.
KEY WORDS: Activation parameters, N-Arylsubstituted hydroxamic acids, Density, Viscosity, Viscosity-B-coefficients, Excess viscosity
