Prediction of available vapor pressure data in the case of compounds containing C-H-O led to derivations and recommendations of standard equations for this property. The accuracy of vapor pressure estimations is essential to use as a basis to calculate acentric factor, thermal and equilibrium properties. In this study, according to the previous work, an accurate equation to estimate vapor pressure is developed to 130 pure C-H-O compounds as a function of reduced temperature and critical pressure. With new proposed equation, vapor pressures have been calculated in comparison with experimental data reported in literature for 2019 data points of 130 pure C-H-O compounds and the overall average absolute relative deviation is only 0.333%. The accuracy of the developed equation has been compared to that of Antoine and other mostly used equations. Our comparisons show that new equation leads to more accurate results than those of literature methods.
