Vapor-liquid critical properties of phenol and (C-8 to C-10) phenylalkanols
The critical pressures and temperatures of phenol and three phenylalkanols C6H5(CH2)(n)OH with n = 2 to 4 have been measured. These substances are thermally unstable at their critical points. The pulse-heating method with ultralow residence times has been used. Residence times are from (0.03 to 1) ms. The experimental critical properties of phenol and phenylalkanols have been compared with the values calculated using the group-contribution methods by Constantinou and Gani and by Marrero and Gani.
