The ultrasonic velocity (u), density (ρ) and viscosity (η) of L-Valine solutions (0.02-0.12 mol.dm-3) in 2% of NaI solutions have been investigated at 288.15, 293.15, 298.15 and 303.15K respectively. The acoustic parameters such as adiabatic compressibility (β), free length (Lf), acoustic impedance (Z), free volume (Vf) and relative association (RA) have been calculated. The variations of acoustic parameters with concentration and temperature indicated the existence of intermolecular interaction in the present systems.
