Abstract  

The structure of aqueous solutions of 1,2-butanediol and 1,4-butanediol was investigated using adiabatic compressibility measurements and positron annihilation methods. In the case of 1,2-butanediol the experimental results are very similar to those obtained earlier for systems where hydrophobic hydration dominates. In both cases there are evidences for increased rigidity of the water network, which arises from the formation of hydrogen bonds between diols and water. The usefulness of both the methods applied in investigating the structure of liquid solutions was proved.

Abstract  

The positron annihilation lifetime and ultrasonic velocity were measured in water+ formamide and water+ethylene glycol systems. The comparison between the concentration and temperature dependences of the results suggests that hydrophylic (substitutional) hydration plays dominating role in structuring the systems under investigation.
