Solubility of nonpolar gases in tetrahydrofuran at 0 to 30°C and 101.33 kPa partial pressure of gas

Abstract

Solubility measurements of several nonpolar gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, H2, D2, N2, CH4, C2H4, C2H6, CF4 and SF6) in tetrahydrofuran from 0 to 30°C and 101.33 kPa partial pressure of gas are reported. Thermodynamic functions for the solution process (Gibbs energy, enthalpy, and entropies) at 25°C are evaluated from experimental values of gas solubility as mole fractions and their variation with temperature. Lennard-Jones 6–12 pair potential parameters for tetrahydrofuran are estimated using the scale particle theory; experimental solubilities as mole fraction are compared with values calculated using this theory.
