Note that the liquid phase is assumed to be incompressible in this formulation. Enthalpy and entropy values are referenced to 200 kJ/kg and 1 kJ/kg-K respectively for saturated liquid at 273.15 K.
Transport properties are estimated using extended corresponding states as described in:
Klein, S.A., McLinden, M.O., Laesecke, A., An Improved Extended Corresponding States Method for Estimation of Viscosity of Pure Refrigerants and Mixtures, International Journal of Refrigeration, Vol. 20, No. 3, 1997, pp. 208-217

Transport properties for the liquid are applicable between 230 K and 360 K. Transport properties for the vapor are applicable between 230 K and 700 K.
