    Do you need it to be non-aqueous , for instance could you deal with organic aqueous solutions i.e. organic compound dissolved in water?

    Honestly this is your research. The topic of organic acid base reactions should be relevant to what you want.

    I'm sure that there are more popular ones out there, but here's one

    citric acid with sodium ethanoate

    The calculations won't be so simple with this one

    If possible you can substitute the ethanoate with sodium hydroxide , that would simplify things and the exothermicity may be more observable.
