Concentration Fluctuations and Their Influence on Sound Absorption

Maxima are usually observed in the curves representing ultrasound absorption as a function of concentration for mixtures of associated liquids, particularly aqueous solutions of substances with polar molecules [1]. They are due to relaxation processes caused by molecular association. A qualitative interpretation of this type was proposed by Bazhulin and Merson [2] in 1938. Attempts at a quantitative calculation of the additional absorption caused by association have been made on the basis of the quasi-chemical model, treating the associates as molecules of strictly defined stoichiometric composition [2–5]. This theory is a good approximation if saturated bonds are formed between the molecules. It can be used only for very rough estimates if the composition of the associate has not been unambiguously determined, and detailed conclusions drawn from it are totally invalid.
