Densities, viscosities and speeds of sound of binary mixtures of ethyl benzoate with cyclohexane, n-hexane, heptane and octane have been measured over the entire range of composition at (303.15, 308.15 and 313.15) K and at atmospheric pressure. From these experimental values, excess molar volume (V E), deviation in viscosity (Δη) and deviation in isentropic compressibility (ΔK s) have been calculated. The viscosities of binary mixtures were calculated theoretically from the pure component data by using various empirical and semi-empirical relations and the results compared with the experimental findings.
