Experimental measurements were made of the low-temperature thermal properties of 2-methylheptane and 2-methyldecane from 12 to 360 K and 12 to 390 K, respectively. From these measured values and data from the literature the following chemical thermodynamic properties were calculated at selected temperatures for the condensed phases of 2-methylbutane, 2-methylpentane, 2-methylhexane, 2-methylheptane, and 2-methyldecane: Gibbs energy function, enthalpy function, enthalpy, entropy, and heat capacity. The entropies of 2-methylheptane and 2-methyldecane in the ideal gas state at 298.15 K were calculated and methylene entropy increments obtained for the 2-methylalkanes, C5 to C11.
