Evaluated data for the solubility of carbon dioxide are essential
for the full understanding of its behavior in industrial processes and
in natural environments.
Gas solubility is one of the fundamental properties of various gas absorption
processes in the chemical industry. The removal of carbon dioxide from
gas mixtures is a necessary and expensive step in many processes. It
is of particular importance, for example, in the purification of ammonia
synthesis gas, in the synthesis of liquid fuels from coal and in the
upgrading of fuel gases. Absorption with suitable solvents provides
a convenient method for the removal of CO2. The availability
of accurate and reliable information on the equilibrium solubility of
carbon dioxide in absorbing solvents as a function of temperature and
pressure is of utmost importance in the rational design of gas-treating
units. Such data will allow more economic construction and more nearly
optimum operation of gas-treating plants. This volume will contain compiled
and evaluated data on the solubility of CO2 in various industrially
important aqueous solvents and solvent mixtures.
