API - TDB CHAPTER 5
Technical Data Book Chapter 5 - Vapor Pressure
|Publication Date:||1 January 1992|
This revised chapter is based on a much expanded and verified experimental data base used both to evaluate prediction methods and to present correlating equations for individual compounds. The inclusion of correlating equations for vapor pressure is new to the chapter and substantially enhances its use. Revised consistent vapor pressure plots are retained for desk use. Both previous methods for prediction of vapor pressure are retained with expanded evaluations. A method for prediction of Reid vapor pressure has been included. Detailed results of the evaluations that serve as a basis for the selection of the material in this chapter are available in Documentation Report #5-93 available from Xerox University Microfilms, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The work on this chapter was carried out by Thomas E. Daubert assisted by Michael J. Thorwart and several undergraduate scholars. The chapter coordinating committee for the Technical Data Committee was Peter Nick of Unocal, Chair; Dale Embry, Phillips Petroleum; and Calvin Spencer, M. W. Kellogg with assistance from B. I. Lee, Mobil; C. K. Shen-Tu, Brown & Root-Braun; and B. Kouzel, Unocal.
