A gas saturation apparatus capable of simultaneous measurements on eighteen samples was used for this work. The vapor pressures of 2-nitrotoluene (2-NT), 3-nitrotoluene (3-NT), 4-nitrotoluene (4-NT) and n-tetradecane (a control compound) were measured with this apparatus over the temperature range 283.15 K to 313.15 K. Over this temperature range, the vapor pressure of 2-NT ranged from 5.53 Pa to 61.1 Pa, the vapor pressure of 3-NT ranged from 3.39 Pa to 37.8 Pa, and the vapor pressure of 4-NT ranged from 1.25 Pa to 26.4 Pa. The expanded (k = 2) uncertainty in vapor pressures is estimated to be 28%. The enthalpies of vaporization or sublimation were determined using the Clausius-Clapeyron equation.
