Handbook of the Thermodynamics of Organic Compounds

Front Cover
This book brings together data from Czechoslovakia on vapor pressures, data from England on critical properties, and data from America on physical properties of organic and organometallic compounds to provide a basic reference book for engineers and scientists involved with research and design in the chemical and petroleum industries. We would like to acknowledge Jaroslav Dykyj, Milan Repas, and Josef Svo boda of Czechoslovakia for providing the material on Antoine constants and Douglas Ambrose of the University of London for providing the material on critical properties. Stanislaw Malanowski pointed out and made available the sources of data from Eastern Europe. Richard Stephenson translated and correlated the data in tabular form. We would like to thank Dr. Matej Andras of the Slovenska Literarna Agentura for granting permission to use the data from Czechoslovakia and Dr. Marjan Bace of Elsevier Science Publishing Co., Inc., who encouraged preparation of this manuscript and handled the publishing arrangements. Particular thanks go to Mary Stephenson for typing the entire camera-ready copy. Richard M. Stephenson University of Connecticut Storrs, Connecticut Stanislaw Malanowski Institute of Physical Chemistry Warsaw, Poland vii Introduction All scientific and engineering calculations are dependent on the availability of thennodynamic and physical property data for the materials or systems in question. This dependency is particularly true in engineering design, which relies almost exclusively on computers for accurate data to produce meaningful final designs."
