Abstract: The excess molar volumes (VE), viscosity deviations (??), deviations in isentropic compressibility (?? S) and excess molar refractivity (?RmE) for {(glycylglycine + ZnCl2) in aqueous methanol} mixture have been calculated from the experimental values. The bridging water molecules bend the chains into stable open ring structures together with intermolecular hydrogen bonding and interstitial accommodation leading to negative VE values. The positive ?? values indicate a structure breaking effect of aqueous glycylglycine-ZnCl2 upon contact with methanol molecules. It is also noted that chelation of zinc to glycylglycinate is through carboxylic group and not the amino group. The negative ??S values suggest the formation of an open ring structure lowering the entropy of the solution. Due to weak interaction between solute and solvent, the molecular structure of individual molecule does not change significantly and leads to negative ?RmE values. Finally, the results have lead to a good understanding of the thermodynamics properties of the studied liquid mixture. 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
