Thermodynamic Properties of Ethane: Vapor-Liquid Coexistence

  • P. T. Eubank
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 17)


A number of correlational studies [1–5] present both vapor-liquid coexistence and superheated vapor thermodynamic properties for ethane. The present compilation is part of a general revision of the C1–C5 alkane, j-tables of API Research Project 44 [6].
