World production of methanol is growing rapidly
and its uses are expanding as a result of environmental legislation
requiring the use of cleaner fuels. A new equation of state has been
developed which represents the available reliable data to within their
experimental accuracy. In particular the equation is able to represent
the rapid increase in the heat capacity of the gas near to saturation
which results from the association of the molecules due to hydrogen
bonding. This book contains the tables of the equilibrium properties
for both the liquid and the gas, complemented by a critical assessment
of all the data and comparisons with the equation of state.
* comprehensive survey of all published thermodynamic data on methanol
* new and unique representation of the correct behaviour of the heat
capacities in the gas phase
* essential reference material
