Abstract

Application of deep eutectic solvents in industrial chemical processes are improved over time in last decades. In this work, vapor pressures of 13 classes of DESs (DES 1-13) based on 5 salts and 7 hydrogen bond donors with various combinations of molar ratio were used between 343-393 K. The vapor pressure of the pure and aqueous solutions of DESs was calculated by different equations of state, which are based on “φ-φ” and "γ-φ" approachs. Additionally, Voutsas and Wagner models as corresponding-state models were modified to predict the vapor pressure of the pure and aqueous solutions of DESs. The total average absolute relative deviations of the Modified-Voutsas and Modified-Wagner models for the vapor pressure calculation of the pure and aqueous solutions of DESs were 7.03, 9.08 % and 5.47, 7.15 %, respectively. Moreover, the validity of vapor pressure calculation using the two modified models was checked with the aid of a linear equation for the average specific heat capacity of different DESs (23 classes of DESs) between 278.15-353.15 K. Results showed that the total average absolute relative deviations of the specific heat capacity of DESs using the Modified-Voutsas and Modified-Wagner models from the experimental data were 4.128 and 4.056 %, respectively.
