Molar excess Gibbs free energies of mixing (C E ) for butyl acetate+cyclohexane or benzene or toluene or o- or m- or p-xylene were calculated by using Barker's method from the measured vapor pressure data by static method at 308.15±0.01 K over the entire composition range. The G E values for the binary mixtures containing cyclohexane or benzene are positive; while these are negative for toluene, o-, m- and p-xylene system over the whole composition range. The G E values of an equimolar mixture for these systems vary in the order: cyclohexane>benzene>o- xylene>m-xylene>p-xylene>toluene. The G E values for these systems were also calculated by Sanchez and Lacome theory using the previously published excess enthalpy and excess volume data. It is found that while values of G E from Sanchez and Lacombe theory are in reasonably good agreement with those calculated by Barker method for m-xylene and p-xylene mixtures, agreement is very poor for other systems although they predict the sign of G E data except in the case of mixtures containing benzene.
