This work presents the experimentally determined density (?), viscosity (?), speed of sound (u), and surface tension (σ) data for tert-amyl methyl ether (TAME) + n-hexane and TAME + m-xylene systems at several temperatures (298.15, 308.15, 318.15, 323.15, and 328.15 K). These experimentally determined thermophysical data are utilized to compute various excess/deviation parameters such as molar volume (V E ), isentropic compressibility (?s E ), speed of sound (u E ), deviation in viscosity (? Ln ?), isobaric thermal expansion coefficient (αP E ), and surface tension (σ E ). The inspection of parameters response may interpret the existing specific molecular interactions as well as the mixing behavior of solutions. The critical analysis of observed parametric behavior have unveiled the strong and weak molecular interactions in TAME with m-xylene and TAME with n-hexane systems, respectively.
