Abstract

The properties of pure components are important for all aspects of process design and optimization. Pure-component properties also underlie much of the observed behavior of mixtures. For example, property models intended for the whole range of composition must give pure component properties at the pure component limits. In addition, pure-component property constants are often used as the basis for models such as corresponding states correlations. As a r esult, w e fi rst s tudy methods for obtaining pure-component constants of the more commonly used properties and show how they can be estimated if no experimental data are available. These include the vapor-liquid critical properties, atmospheric melting and boiling temperatures, the acentric factor, and dipole moments.
