Partial molar volumes at infinite dilution have been obtained for 3 perfluoroalkylalkanes (PFAA) in n-octane at 298.15. K from experimental apparent molal volumes. The results were interpreted estimating the contributions of the hydrogenated and perfluorinated segments to the partial molar volume. For this reason, partial molar volumes at infinite dilution for 3 perfluoroalkanes (PFA) in n-octane at 298.15. K have also been obtained. The results were further interpreted using the hetero-SAFT-VR equation of state, which models the perfluoroalkylalkanes as heterosegmented di-block chains. The cross interactions, both intra and intermolecular, were characterised using parameters developed in earlier studies for (alkane. +. perfluoroalkane) mixtures: the calculations are thus fully predictive. The theory is able to accurately predict the volumetric behaviour of the solutions of perfluoroalkylalkanes, without fitting to any experimental data.
