Solvent Screening for Cyclopentane Purification Based on COSMO

Lehuan Wu, Xinyun Pu, and Yansheng Liu
Abstract—Separation of cyclopentane has an important significance in environmental protection and resource utilization. This work is intended to serve as a rapid way to screen mixed solvent for extractive distillation of cyclopentane using the COSMO-RS method. IDACs and VLE data of different binary systems were compared with computational results. Then the performance of mixed solvent was studied by the COSMO-RS method, including the influences of the solvent-to-feed ratio and the basic solvent and cosolvent ratio on the relative volatility. Finally, the mixed solvent was validated to be effective by the experiments.

Index Terms—COSMO-RS, cyclopentane, solvent screening, IDACs.
