POLYOLEFINS: Thermodynamic Data of Ethylene-Propane Mixtures in Condensed and Supercritical State

POLYOLEFINS: Thermodynamic Data of Ethylene-Propane Mixtures in Condensed and Supercritical State

Sebastian Kröner, Wang Minjiong, Michael Bartke

Experimental thermodynamic data of the system ethylene/propane in condensed and supercritical state is presented in this work. Experiments and simulations are focused on temperature and pressure conditions relevant for heterogeneous polymerization of polyethylene as applied in industry. Good description of the experimental data could be achieved by simulations using the Peng-Robinson EOS with a liquid phase density correction.
