A study was carried out to examine the still incompletely understood thermodynamics of hydrophobic hydration beginning from a microscopy theory. The theory was extended to describe aqueous mixtures containing nonpolar solutes. The resulting mixture free energy and equations of state (EOS) capture many of the distinguishing thermodynamic features associated with hydrophobic hydration.
