Densities (r) and Viscosities (h) of binary mixtures of 1, 4-dioxane and benzene or chlorobenzene have been measured as a function of mole fraction at atmospheric pressure and at different temperatures of (303.15, 308.15and 313.15) K. These values have been used to calculate the excess molar volume (VE) and the viscosity deviations (Δη) and Grunberg – Nissan interaction constant (d') of the binary mixtures. The viscosity values were fitted to the models of McAllister, Krishnan-Laddha, Jouyban – Acree model. The excess values were correlated using the Redlich-Kister polynomial equation to obtain their coefficients and standard deviations. It was found that in all cases the experimental data obtained fitted with the values correlated by the corresponding model very well. The molecular interactions existing between the components were also discussed.
