Experimental determination and modelling of high-pressure phase behavior for the binary system CO2 + cyclooctane

Abstract : Using a synthetic method, the phase behavior of the CO2 (1) + cyclooctane (2) binary system was for the first time experimentally studied between 292.95 K and 373.55 K. In this temperature range, the bubble- and dew-point pressures, ranging from 13.2 to 183.4 bar were measured for carbon dioxide mole fractions between 0.1014 and 0.9701. A total of 96 experimental data points were acquired. The experimental data were obtained using a high-pressure cell by visual observation of phase transitions. These measurements made it possible to conclude that the studied binary system probably exhibits a type V phase behavior in the classification scheme of Van Konynenburg and Scott. In particular, the experimental temperature of the suspected lower critical end point (LCEP) was found to be 303 K. Despite the complexity of the phase behavior, the experimental data could be accurately correlated with the Peng-Robinson equation of state combined with sophisticated mixing rules that either involve temperature-dependent binary interaction parameters (kij(T)) or that embed the residual part of the Wilson activity coefficient model.
