Vapor–Liquid Equilibria of the Aqueous and Organic Mixtures Composed of Dipropylene Glycol Methyl Ether, Dipropylene Glycol n -Butyl Ether, and Propylene Glycol n -Butyl Ether. Part II: Modeling Based on the NRTL-PR Model

Further to the Part I of the present paper, the second Part is concentrated around the VLE modeling of binary mixtures involving the three glycol ethers previously studied experimentally. The authors propose to use the NRTL-PR model for the representation of these non-ideal mixtures. The main difficulties of modelling related to very low vapor pressures and the way of dealing with them are highlighted. The unknown critical parameters for DPM, DPnB and PnB were determined using robust group contribution methods. However, the experimental values of these parameters have never been published before. The main goal of the authors was to obtain the most satisfactory representation of the experimental data provided in the Part I. Some issues that mostly occurred in mixtures involving the PnB as well as in mixtures having very low vapor pressures, were encountered. Nevertheless, we have obtained in general a satisfactory representation of measured points regardless of those issues.
