Densities and viscosities of the binary mixtures of propylene carbonate with methanol, ethanol, propanol, butanol, and hexanol, along with those of the pure liquids, were measured over the entire mole fraction range at 25 C. Using the experimental values of densities ρ and viscosities η, the excess molar volumes VE, viscosity deviations Δη, excess Gibbs energies of activation of viscous flow ΔGE, and Grunberg–Nissan interaction parameters d12 were calculated from the linear dependence of these parameters on the composition of the mixtures.
