Physicochemical properties data of solvent mixtures is an integral part of ‎designing new industrial processes, developing theoretical models and etc. In this work, physicochemical properties of ternary mixtures of carbitol with water and 2-propanol including density, viscosity, and speed of sound in the entire range of compositions and temperatures including 298.15, 303.15, 308.15, and 313.15 K and atmospheric pressure of 0.868 MPa were carried out and compared with the available literature data. Jouyban–Acree and the Jouyban-Acree-van’t Hoff models were used for mathematical correlation of the obtained records. The mean relative deviation (MRD%) was used as an error scale. The related MRDs% for the predicted properties after training the Jouyban-Acree model were 0.2%, 5.9%, and 0.3%, and the Jouyban-Acree-van’t Hoff model were 0.2%, 6.0%, and 0.3% for density, viscosity, and speed of sound, respectively.
