Vapor-liquid equilibrium data have been determined at 50 kPa for the binary systems oxolane (THF)+ethyl 1,1-dimethylethyl ether (ETBE) and oxolane+2-propanol, and at 94kPa for the system propan-2-one+trichloromethane. Excess volumes have also been determined from density measurements at 298.15 K. The systems oxolane+ethyl 1,1-dimethylethyl ether and oxolane+2-propanol exhibit slight to moderate positive deviations from ideal behavior and no azeotrope is present. The system propan-2-one+trichloromethane exhibits negative deviations from ideal behavior and presents an azeotrope. The excess volumes of the system oxolane+ethyl 1,1-dimethylethyl ether are negative over the whole mole fraction range while those of the system oxolane+2-propanol are positive. Excess volumes of the system propan-2-one+trichloromethane, change from negative to positive as the concentration of propan-2-one increases. The activity coefficients and boiling points of the solutions were correlated with the mole fraction by the Wohl, Wilson, UNIQUAC, and NRTL equations, and predicted by the UNIFAC group contribution method. Excess volume data were correlated using the Redlich-Kister expansion. The chemical association theory was applied for explaining the equilibrium behavior of the systems oxolane+2-propanol and propan-2-one+trichloromethane.
