Kinematic viscosities were measured for 2-butanone + 2-butanol binary liquid mixtures with a capillary Ubbelohde routine viscometer in the temperature range from 273.15 to 353.15 K at atmospheric pressure, and covering the whole miscibility field (0 less than or equal to x(i) less than or equal to 1). Experimental data have been correlated by means of different empirical or semiempirical relationships, such as nu = nu(T), nu = nu(x(i)), and nu = nu(T, x(i)). Viscosity deviations, Deltanu, from ideal behavior are negative at all experimental conditions, confirming that structure breaking effects prevail in the liquids. Furthermore, the thermodynamics of viscous flow and excess Gibbs energy of activation of viscous flow, G*(E), have been calculated. As an alternative and complementary approach to such investigations, the fluidity (phi) of this binary system has been analyzed by the modified-Batschinski theory. The results are discussed in terms of the specific molecular interactions between the mixture components.
