Abstract

Despite the extensive use of 2-propanol and acetone in a wide range of applications in the chemical industry and in energy engineering, there is a lack of experimental data in the literature for their thermophysical properties including viscosity, interfacial tension, and density, especially at elevated temperatures beyond the respective normal boiling points. In the present study, the liquid viscosity and interfacial tension were determined simultaneously by surface light scattering (SLS) with average expanded uncertainties of (1.7 and 0.9)% at or close to saturation conditions for temperatures between (273 and 403) K. Furthermore, capillary viscometry (CV) and vibrating-tube densimetry were employed to measure the liquid viscosity at ambient pressure of 0.1 MPa from (283 to 353) K and the liquid density close to saturation conditions between (278 and 423) K. The obtained density data were used for the evaluation of both SLS and CV experiments. In comparison with literature data, the present density data show agreement for 2-propanol over the entire temperature range. In contrast, deviations of up to 0.5% at the maximum temperature can be found for acetone. For the viscosity and interfacial tension at low temperatures, agreement of the measurement results among each other and with literature data is mostly found. At elevated temperatures, the increasing deviations of the present experimental viscosity and interfacial tension data from recommended correlations indicate a lack of reliable data needed for their development. Overall, this work contributes to an improvement of the database for viscosity, interfacial tension, and density of 2-propanol and acetone over a wide temperature range up to 423 K.
