Abstract

The vapour pressures, saturated liquid and vapour densities, enthalpies of vaporization, isobaric, and saturation heat capacities are calculated for ethane and ethylene along their vapour-liquid equilibrium (VLE) curves from Monte Carlo simulations using the extended NpT plus test particle (XNpT + TP) method (Boda, D., Liszi, J., and Szalai, I., 1995, Chem. Phys. Lett., 235, 140). The substances are modelled by two-centre Lennard-Jones molecules of elongations L * = 0.67 for ethane and L * = 0.74 for ethylene. Simulation results are compared with correlated experimental data. In the case of ethylene new values are required for the model parameters to obtain a good agreement with experimental data along the VLE curve. Our results show that the XNpT + TP method is appropriate for the simulation of caloric properties of molecular fluids along the VLE curve.
