Abstract: Partial molar volumes of oxalic acid and its salts, viz., ammonium oxalate, sodium oxalate and potassium oxalate, have been determined in different compositions of water-rich binary aqueous mixtures of methanol (3, 6, 9, 12, and 15 wt. percent of methanol) from solution density measurements at 298.15 K and in 3% (w/w) methanol + water at different temperatures. The data have been analysed by using Masson equation and the obtained parameters have been interpreted in terms of ion-solvent and ion-ion interactions. The partial molar volumes vary with temperature as a power series of temperature. Structure making/breaking capacities of the electrolytes have been inferred from the sign of ([∂2φ0v / ∂T2)p, i.e. the second derivative of partial molar volume with respect to temperature at constant pressure. Oxalic acid and its salts act as structure breakers in binary aqueous mixtures of methanol.
