A determination of the specific rotation of di-ethyl tartrate in various mixed-solvents has been made at 25° and 30°, using two different concentrations of the ester. The solvents used were ethyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, benzene and toluene and the binary mixtures of each solvent with each of the remaining solvents. The mixed solvents were made on a mol fraction basis.
