Densities, viscosities, refractive indices, and sound velocities of 2-methoxyethanol + ester mixtures have been measured at 298.15, 303.15 and 308.15 K. These data have been used to calculate excess volume, excess isentropic compressibility, excess refraction, excess viscosity and excess Gibbs energy of activation of flow. These quantities have been fitted to quadratic equations to estimate the parameters and standard errors. The results have been interpreted in term of the intermolecular interactions between the mixing components.
