Title: Solubility data related to industrial processes. Carbon dioxide and the lower alkanes at pressures above 2 bar: methane to butane

Series: Solubility Data Series; editor-in-chief: Mark Salomon

Task Group
A.E. Mather

Completion Date: 2008 - project abandoned

The behaviour of carbon dioxide at high pressures has great industrial importance. This volume will complement other volumes in the Solubility Data Series covering the behaviour of carbon dioxide at lower pressures.

The solubility of carbon dioxide and the lower alkanes is important as most natural gases contain CO2 as well as these alkanes. Usually, CO2 has to be separated from the hydrocarbons to meet the specifications on calorific value of fuels. In Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), carbon dioxide is used to displace the hydrocarbons from the reservoir and the solubility of CO2 in the hydrocarbons is important to ensure that miscibility occurs, with concomitant increase in the oil recovered.

300 compilation sheets in draft form; 290 sheets in camera ready form; 15 evaluation sheets in draft form.

To be published as part of the IUPAC-NIST Solubility Data Series. in J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data.
