m-Xylene

 

m-Xylene provides thermodynamic property data for m-xylene (1-3-dimethylbenzene, CAS #108-38-3, MW 106.165 g/gmole).  The thermodynamic properties are obtained using the fundamental equation of state provided by:

 

Yong Zhou, Jiantau Wu and Eric Lemmon",

"Thermodynamic Properties of o-xylene, m-xylene, p-xylene, and ethylbenzene"

J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data, Vol. 41, No. 2, 2012

 

The correlation is valid for temperatures between 225.3 K and 700 K for pressures less than 200 MPa.

 

The reference state for which the specific enthalpy and entropy are both zero is saturated liquid at the normal boiling point.

 

Transport properties are provided using correlations given in:

Yaws, Carl L., ed. Chemical Properties Handbook. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1999.

 

The correlation for gas phase thermoconductivity is applicable for temperatures between 400 and 825 K.

The correlation for liquid phase thermoconductivity is applicable for temperatures between 225 and 586 K.

 

The correlation for gas phase viscosity is applicable for temperatures between 250 and 1000 K.

The correlation for liquid phase viscosity is applicable for temperatures between 225 and the critical temperature.
