Molar heat capacities of 4-methyl-2-pentanone and 2,6-dimethyl-4-heptanone in the liquid state have been measured at a constant pressure over the temperature range 298.15 to 318.15 K. In order that the appropriateness of selection of literature data for correlation of the heat capacity as a function of temperature may be verified, results for three 1-alkanols (1-hexanol, 1-heptanol, and 1-octanol) have been measured over the same temperature range.
