List of methods which can be used to obtain Tb with the given inputs
Other Parameters: Method : string, optional
A string for the method name to use, as defined by constants in Tb_methods

Clapeyron
(T, Tc, Pc, dZ=1, Psat=101325)[source]¶ Calculates enthalpy of vaporization at arbitrary temperatures using the Clapeyron equation.
The enthalpy of vaporization is given by:
\[\Delta H_{vap} = RT \Delta Z \frac{\ln (P_c/Psat)}{(1T_{r})}\]Parameters: T : float
Temperature of fluid [K]
Tc : float
Critical temperature of fluid [K]
Pc : float
Critical pressure of fluid [Pa]
dZ : float
Change in compressibility factor between liquid and gas, []
Psat : float
Saturation pressure of fluid [Pa], optional
Returns: Hvap : float
Enthalpy of vaporization, [J/mol]
Notes
No original source is available for this equation. [R10201046] claims this equation overpredicts enthalpy by several percent. Under Tr = 0.8, dZ = 1 is a reasonable assumption. This equation is most accurate at the normal boiling point.
Internal units are bar.
WARNING: I believe it possible that the adjustment for pressure may be incorrect

Pitzer
(T, Tc, omega)[source]¶ Calculates enthalpy of vaporization at arbitrary temperatures using a fit by [R10221047] to the work of Pitzer [R10211047]; requires a chemical’s critical temperature and acentric factor.
The enthalpy of vaporization is given by:
\[\frac{\Delta_{vap} H}{RT_c}=7.08(1T_r)^{0.354}+10.95\omega(1T_r)^{0.456}\]Parameters: T : float
Temperature of fluid [K]
Tc : float
Critical temperature of fluid [K]
omega : float
Acentric factor []
Returns: Hvap : float
Enthalpy of vaporization, [J/mol]
Notes
This equation is listed in [R10231047], page 2487 as method #2 for estimating Hvap. This cites [R10221047].
The recommended range is 0.6 to 1 Tr. Users should expect up to 5% error. T must be under Tc, or an exception is raised.
The original article has been reviewed and found to have a set of tabulated values which could be used instead of the fit function to provide additional accuracy.

\(\omega_1\) = carbazole = 0.461
A sample problem in the article has been verified. The numerical result presented by the author requires high numerical accuracy to obtain.

Tmax
= None¶ Maximum temperature at which no method can calculate the heat of vaporization above.

Tmin
= None¶ Minimum temperature at which no method can calculate the heat of vaporization under.

calculate
(T, method)[source]¶ Method to calculate heat of vaporization of a liquid at temperature T with a given method.
This method has no exception handling; see T_dependent_property for that.
Parameters: T : float
Temperature at which to calculate heat of vaporization, [K]
method : str
Name of the method to use
Returns: Hvap : float
Heat of vaporization of the liquid at T, [J/mol]

interpolation_T
= None¶ No interpolation transformation by default.

interpolation_property
= None¶ No interpolation transformation by default.

interpolation_property_inv
= None¶ No interpolation transformation by default.

load_all_methods
()[source]¶ Method which picks out coefficients for the specified chemical from the various dictionaries and DataFrames storing it. All data is stored as attributes. This method also sets
Tmin
,Tmax
, andall_methods
as a set of methods for which the data exists for.Called on initialization only. See the source code for the variables at which the coefficients are stored. The coefficients can safely be altered once the class is initialized. This method can be called again to reset the parameters.

name
= 'Enthalpy of vaporization'¶

property_max
= 1000000.0¶ Maximum valid of heat of vaporization. Set to twice the value in the available data.

property_min
= 0¶ Mimimum valid value of heat of vaporization. This occurs at the critical point exactly.

ranked_methods
= ['COOLPROP', 'DIPPR_PERRY_8E', 'VDI_PPDS', 'MORGAN_KOBAYASHI', 'SIVARAMAN_MAGEE_KOBAYASHI', 'VELASCO', 'PITZER', 'VDI_TABULAR', 'ALIBAKHSHI', 'CRC_HVAP_TB', 'CRC_HVAP_298', 'GHARAGHEIZI_HVAP_298', 'CLAPEYRON', 'RIEDEL', 'CHEN', 'VETERE', 'LIU']¶ Default rankings of the available methods.

sorted_valid_methods
= None¶ sorted_valid_methods, list: Stored methods which were found valid at a specific temperature; set by T_dependent_property.

tabular_data
= None¶ tabular_data, dict: Stored (Ts, properties) for any tabular data; indexed by provided or autogenerated name.

tabular_data_interpolators
= None¶ tabular_data_interpolators, dict: Stored (extrapolator, spline) tuples which are interp1d instances for each set of tabular data; indexed by tuple of (name, interpolation_T, interpolation_property, interpolation_property_inv) to ensure that if an interpolation transform is altered, the old interpolator which had been created is no longer used.

tabular_extrapolation_permitted
= True¶ Allow tabular extrapolation by default; values below 0 will be obtained at high temperatures.

test_method_validity
(T, method)[source]¶ Method to check the validity of a method. For CSP methods, the models are considered valid from 0 K to the critical point. For tabular data, extrapolation outside of the range is used if
tabular_extrapolation_permitted
is set; if it is, the extrapolation is considered valid for all temperatures.It is not guaranteed that a method will work or give an accurate prediction simply because this method considers the method valid.
The constant methods CRC_HVAP_TB, CRC_HVAP_298, and GHARAGHEIZI_HVAP are adjusted for temperature dependence according to the
Watson
equation, with a temperature exponent as set inWatson_exponent
, usually regarded as 0.38. However, if Tc is not set, then the adjustment cannot be made. In that case the methods are considered valid for within 5 K of their boiling point or 298.15 K as appropriate.Parameters: T : float
Temperature at which to test the method, [K]
method : str
Name of the method to test
Returns: validity : bool
Whether or not a method is valid

units
= 'J/mol'¶

user_methods
= None¶ user_methods, list: Stored methods which were specified by the user in a ranked order of preference; set by T_dependent_property.

Hfus
(T=298.15, P=101325, MW=None, AvailableMethods=False, Method=None, CASRN='')[source]¶ This function handles the calculation of a chemical’s enthalpy of fusion. Generally this, is used by the chemical class, as all parameters are passed. Calling the function directly works okay.
Enthalpy of fusion is a weak function of pressure, and its effects are neglected.
This API is considered experimental, and is expected to be removed in a future release in favor of a more complete objectoriented interface.

Hsub
(T=298.15, P=101325, MW=None, AvailableMethods=False, Method=None, CASRN='')[source]¶ This function handles the calculation of a chemical’s enthalpy of sublimation. Generally this, is used by the chemical class, as all parameters are passed.
This API is considered experimental, and is expected to be removed in a future release in favor of a more complete objectoriented interface.

Tliquidus
(Tms=None, ws=None, xs=None, CASRNs=None, AvailableMethods=False, Method=None)[source]¶ This function handles the retrival of a mixtures’s liquidus point.
This API is considered experimental, and is expected to be removed in a future release in favor of a more complete objectoriented interface.
