Molecular geometry and boiling related thermodynamic properties

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Scopus citations


Boiling related thermodynamic properties are important parameters in research. In this study, a model integrating both additive groups and non-additive molecular geometric factors has been developed for the calculation of boiling enthalpy, entropy and temperature. The calculated values are in good agreement with the measured values of 470 compounds. This model provides a simple and accurate estimation of enthalpy of boiling, entropy of boiling and boiling temperatures with absolute average errors of 0.62 kJ/mol, 1.15 J/K·mol and 7.13 K respectively.
