Refractometry of Water–Ethanol Solutions near Their Contraction Point
Section: Soft matter
Original Author's Text: Ukrainian
Abstract: The concentration dependences of the refractive index in aqueous ethanol solutions at equilibrium have been studied experimentally. Special attention was paid to their behavior in a vicinity of the peculiar point defined as the intersection point of the concentration dependences of the contraction measured at different temperatures or as a point, at which the intensity of molecular light scattering has a maximum. The refractive index is found to noticeably deviate from its reference values in a vicinity of the peculiar point, 0.05 < x < 0.1 (x is the mole fraction of ethanol). This effect reflects the fact that the equilibrium properties of the solutions concerned are established only during a few weeks. Arguments that the system becomes microinhomogeneous in this concentration interval are presented
Key words: water-alcohol solutions, refractive index, microinhomogeneous structure.
