## Abstract

The well-known equation of state Soave-Redlich-Kwong and two of its modifications are applied to describe vapor-liquid equilibrium in binary asymmetric mixtures, which contain supercritical carbon dioxide and a heavy component. Several mixing rules including the classical van der Waals mixing rules with one and two interaction parameters, non-quadratic mixing rules, and the used of a Gibbs free energy model, are used with these equations. Seven mixtures containing supercritical carbon dioxide are considered in the study. The experimental data were obtained from literature sources and the adjustable parameters were found by minimizing the errors between predicted and experimental data of the concentration of the solute in the liquid phase. The work allows concluding on the advantages, disadvantages and expected accuracy of these equations of state and mixing rules for correlating vaporliquid equilibrium data in asymmetric systems as those studied.
