Prediction of the Vapor–Liquid Equilibrium of Formaldehyde–Water–Trioxane Ternary System by the Conductor-Like Screening Model for Real Solvents

Abstract—In this study, a thermodynamic model was combined with the conductor-like screening model for real solvents (COSMO-RS), coupled with chemical reaction equilibrium and mass balance, for describing the phase behavior and complex chemical equilibrium in the ternary system of formaldehyde–water–trioxane at temperatures between 413 K. New approach for the prediction of vapor-liquid equilibrium of the binary system (TOX + W) and the ternary system (FA+W+TOX) is compared with experimental data and UNIFAC method. The calculated vapor–liquid equilibrium (VLE) result shows good agreement with the experimental data. The COSMO-RS model has proven to be an accurate and effective method for predicting the activity coefficient, and also more reasonable for predicting the thermodynamic properties of formaldehyde–water–methanol reactive fluids.

Index Terms—COSMO-RS, modeling, phase equilibrium, formaldehyde aqueous solution, trioxane.
