Association Effects in Propionic Acid Systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


Vapor-liquid equilibrium data were determined at 760 mm Hg for the systems propionic acid-carbon tetrachloride and propionic acid-methyl isobutyl ketone. Both systems presented strong positive deviations from ideal behavior, and the experimental results were thermodynamically consistent only when the association effects of propionic acid were taken Into account. Liquid-phase activity coefficients were correlated with the Redlich-Kister and Wilson equations. Boiling points were predicted by a three-constant empirical correlation.
