Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 18)


A number of correlational studies [1–4] present both vapor-liquid coexistence and superheated vapor thermodynamic properties of propane. The present compilation is part of a general revision of the j-Tables of the American Petroleum Institute Research Project 44 [5] for C1 through C5 alkanes.
