The P-V-X behavior of the liquid system acetone-carbon disulfide at elevated pressures



The change in volume on mixing for a system showing large positive deviations from ideality is examined at one temperature to pressures of 100,000 lb./ Original atmospheric pressure density data and compression measurements over the entire mole fraction range for this system, acetone–carbon disulfide, are reported at 0°C. These are correlated with the semiempirical Tait equation to yield change in volume on mixing as a function of mole fraction and pressure.

This volume change is found to decrease from the maximum of 1 cc./mole at atmospheric pressure to about 0.4 cc./mole at 100,000 lb./ The maximum also shifts during this pressure increase from 0.53 mole fraction acetone to 0.74.
