Measurements of the refractive index from 288 to 318 K at five fixed wavelengths, from 656.3 to 404.7 nm, are reported for benzene, toluene (methylbenzene), o-xylene (1,2-dimethylbenzene), m-xylene (1,3-dimethylbenzene), and p-xylene (1,4-dimethylbenzene). We also report the temperature and wavelength dependencies of the refractive index obtained from a least-squares routine. The agreement between the measured and calculated refractive indices lies within the experimental uncertainty. ?? 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
