Enthalpies of Vaporization
of Organic Compounds:
A Critical Review and Data Compilation

Blackwell Science,1985 [ISBN 0632015292]
The purpose of this project, commissioned
by the IUPAC Subcommittee on Thermodynamic Tables, was to collect and
critically evaluate all calorimetrically determined data on the enthalpy
of vaporization (CT) (HV) of organic compounds, to generate a set of
recommended values, and to evaluate standard enthalpies of vaporization
and cohesive energies. Every effort was made to furnish the maximum
amount of information on the origin of experimental data, their reliability
and consistency, experimental techniques and the data treatment. Besides
the recommended values with accuracy estimates, the tables list all
the direct experimental values with relevant comments. The main applications
of enthalpies of vaporization in thermodynamics and
chemical engineering are discussed.
