Deep eutectic solvents (DESs) are derived from two or more salts as the hydrogen bond acceptors (HBAs) and hydrogen bond donors (HBDs). In this work, DES namely allyltriphenylphosphonium bromide- triethylene glycol (ATPPB-TEG) was prepared by using three molar ratios; i.e.,1:4, 1:10, and 1:16 of salt to HBDs. The volumetric properties of aqueous mixture of DESs, such as density, molar volume, isobaric thermal expansion, apparent molar volume and apparent molar expansibility were reported at several temperatures from 293.15 to 343.15 K. A mathematical equation, namely Jouyban–Acree model (JAM), was used to correlate the experimental density and molar volume data. Furthermore, in order to calculate the limiting apparent molar volume values, the apparent molar volume values were fitted into a Redlich–Mayer equation. By applying Hepler equation, it was found that DESs 1:4 and 1:10 are as structure-maker solutes, while DES 1:16 is a structure-breaking solute in aqueous solutions.
