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

V. Majer, V. Svoboda

Blackwell Science,1985 [ISBN

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.


Introduction; Enthalpy of vaporization - basic relations and major applications; Non-calorimetric methods for determining enthalpies of vaporization and data availability; Calorimetric methods for determining enthalpies of vaporization of pure substances; Critical compilation of enthalpies of vaporization and cohesive energies; Guide to tables.
