R116 provides high accuracy thermodynamic properties for R116 (hexafluoroethane, C2F6, MW 138.01 g/gmole) using the Fundamental Equation of State as described by Reiner Tillner-Roth, "Fundamental Equations of State", Shaker, Verlag, Aachan, 1998.  The correlation is valid for temperatures in the range between 176 K and  425 K for pressures less than 50 MPa.  Enthalpy and entropy values are referenced to zero at 1 kPa, 273.15 K. 


The parameters for the fundamental equation of state and ancillary equations were based on unpublished data provided by A.D. Kozlov, 1996 (Moscow) and provided by Professor Steve Penoncello, College of Engineering, University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho, 83844-1011.


Gas phase transport data are correlated to data available from the NIST project,
