Title: Volume 15: Carbon Dioxide
Series: International Thermodynamic Tables of the Fluid State
Completion Date: 2000 - abandoned
A completely new volume in the series 'International Thermodynamic
Tables of the Fluid State' is proposed for carbon dioxide, which will
replace the existing volume 3, published in 1976. Since that date,
a considerable quantity of new more accurate data has been published
and a new equation of state has been prepared by Professor W. Wagner
and Roland Span at the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum and is to be published
in the Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data. Carbon dioxide
is of growing importance in many industrial processes, such as its
application as a solvent in supercritical extraction and as a coolant
in gas-cooled nuclear reactors. The CO2-water system is
one of the most fundamental in hydrothermal geochemistry and is also
important in tertiary oil recovery. Removal of CO2 from
gas mixtures produced by partial oxidation of oil or gasification
of coal requires a knowledge of the properties of the mixtures.
An accurate equation of state for the pure fluid is required directly,
for example, in power plant technology and for other processes it
is a prerequisite for the accurate prediction of the properties of
mixtures of which it is either a major or minor constituent.
The equation of state has now been published ["A New Equation
of State for carbon Dioxide covering the Fluid Region from the Triple
Point Temperature to 1100 K at Pressures up to 800 MPa", R. Span
and W. Wagner, J.
Phys. Chem. Ref. Data,
Vol. 6, pp. 1509-1596 (1996)].
R. Span and M. de Reuck were working on the preparation of the book.
