Volatile organic compounds - Biphenyl thermodynamic interactions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This work focused on the thermodynamic interactions involving volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and biphenyl. The solubility of 60 VOCs in biphenyl was studied using group contribution methods. The modified UNIFAC Dortmund and Lyngby were used to compute the required phase equilibrium in the form of infinite dilution activity coefficients. Six family groups were studied mainly alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, aldehydes, alcohols, and carboxylic acids. The Modified UNIFAC Dortmund performed better than the Modified UNIFAC Lyngby. Biphenyl showed excellent absorption affinity for all VOCs in particular for alkynes and aldehydes. The solubility decreased with increase in VOC molecular weight.
