A new method for use in the ultraviolet spectral range was developed for the direct measurement of the group velocity mismatch (GVM) between two ultrashort pulses. It is based on a standard pump probe spectroscopic arrangement. From the measured wavelength dependence of the GVM the refractive index dispersion can be determined if refractive index data at one reference wavelength is known. The GVM was measured and dispersion formulae were derived at room temperature in the 230 to 640 nm spectral range for 2-propanol, acetonitrile, cyclohexane, dimethyl sulfoxide, ethanol, ethyl acetate, ethylene glycol, methanol, n-hexane, toluene, and water. The results obtained for water show a good agreement with available experimental data.
