Light Scattering by Aqueous Solutions of Alcohols Near Their Singular Points

Section: Soft matter
Original Author's Text: Ukrainian

Abstract: The dependence of the position x0 of the low-concentration peak on the curves of light scattering by aqueous solutions of alcohols on their molecular masses has been found. The relevant concentration for ethylene glycol at 20C is determined and compared with the literature data for the homologous series of methanol. The obtained dependence is linear to an error less than 2%.

Key words: light scattering, dilute aqueous solutions of alcohols, low-concentration peak, ethylene glycol.
