Classical thermodynamics, as developed in the nineteenth century, admits to no particular material cause of matter, specifically no claim that matter is comprised of atoms and molecules. Yet classical thermodynamic techniques often yield results that provide important insights into the molecular structure of bulk matter. This is particularly true for volumetric studies of liquid solutions. Several examples of such studies will be presented including those for the aqueous solutions of sugars, poly[vinyl alcohol], and the polyiodide-poly[vinyl alcohol] complex.
