Abstract : The electrical conductivities of 0.10M KCL solutions in CH3OH-H2O, C2H5OH-H2O and n-C3H5OH-H2O solutions were measured as a function of temperature, pressure, and solvent composition over the ranges 0 to 20C, 1 atm to 4,500 kgm/sq cm and 0.0 to 0.4 mole fraction alcohol. The presence of the second solvent tends to make the solution more 'normal' by altering the structure of the bulk medium and the local structure near the ions. The order of effectiveness, n-C3H7OH > C2H5OH > CH3OH, indicates that the more dissimilar the second solvent is from water, the more 'normal' the mixed solvent. (Author)
