Abstract

The paper systematizes the reference data on diffusion and thermal expansion of water, pure cryoprotectants, their aqueous solutions and mixtures. We obtained empirical polynomial equations for calculating the coefficients of diffusion and thermal expansion of water and pure cryoprotectants in dependence of the temparature. Empirical polynomial equations were obtained for aqueous solutions of cryoprotectants depending on the temperature and constant concentrations or depending on concentration and constant temperature.
