Solute-Solvent Interaction in Aqueous Solutions Studied by Optical Kerr Effect
Languages of publication
Solute-solvent interactions were studied by a method based on laser induced optical birefringence in aqueous solutions. The paper reports results of the optical Kerr constant measurements for binary liquid mixtures of aqueous solution of methanol, ethanol, n-propanol and acetone at room temperature in a wide range of concentrations. At 50% concentration of the above mentioned alcohols, the temperature dependence of the laser induced optical birefringence was also measured in the range from 283 K to 315 K. These data together with the density and refractive index were used to calculate the optical and specific Kerr constants. Moreover, these data enabled the calculation of the anisotropic factors, optical anisotropy and orientation function of the substances studied.
