Excess molar volumes, \(V_{ijk}^{E}\), are reported for ternary mixtures of tetrahydropyran (i)+benzene (j)+toluene or o- or p-xylenes (k) and tetrahydropyran (i)+toluene (j)+o- or p-xylenes (k) as a function of composition at 308.15 K. These \(V_{ijk}^{E}\) values have been fitted to the Redlich–Kister equation to predict ternary adjustable parameters and standard deviations. The measured \(V_{ijk}^{E}\) data have been analyzed in terms of Graph theory (which involves the topology of the constituents of mixtures). It has been observed that \(V_{ijk}^{E}\) values predicted by Graph theory compare well with their corresponding experimental values.
