C4H10 provides ideal gas thermodynamic properties for n-butane valid over the temperature range from 200 K to 3500 K based on property information from McBride et al.(2002). The reference state for specific enthalpy is based on the enthalpy of formation relative to the elements at 25°C. The reference state for specific entropy is based on the Third Law of Thermodynamics. The reference values are from:
Bonnie J. McBride, Michael J. Zehe, and Sanford Gordon
"NASA Glenn Coefficients for CalculatingThermodynamic Properties of Individual Species"

Transport property correlations were developed from data provided in:
Thermophysical Properties of Matter
Vol. 3: Thermal Conductivity, Y.S. Touloukian, P.E. Liley, S.C. Saxena
Vol. 11: Viscosity, Y.S. Touloukian, S.C. Saxena, and P. Hestermans
IFI/Plenun, NY, 1970, ISBN 0-306067020-8
The viscosity and thermal conductivity correlations are applicable for temperatures between 270 K and 520 K.
Note that C4H10 provides thermodynamic properties assuming ideal gas behavior. Use n-Butane or isobutane to provide real fluid properties in the subcooled, saturated mixture, and superheated regimes.
