The non-ideal liquid and gas mixtures need to be studied for extent of non-ideality. The measurements of excess properties can be carried out experimentally by utilizing various measurable properties. Also these can be estimated by various model equations. Density, excess molar volume and apparent molar volume for a binary mixture are major properties. Thermodynamics can be used as a tool to determine many volumetric properties like this. Factors such as temperature, pressure affect the thermodynamic and volumetric properties considerably. These are large number of properties of a mixture such as thermal expansion coefficients, excess thermal expansion coefficients, and isothermal coefficients of pressure excess molar enthalpy, partial molar volumes, partial molar volumes at infinite dilution, partial excess molar volumes, and partial excess molar volumes at infinite dilution which have thermodynamic significance. Current review summarizes research and studies on thermodynamics of mixtures

Key words: Infinite dilution, excess properties, enthalpy, partial properties.
