Sensitivity analysis of the vapour-liquid phase equilibrium properties of a three-centre Lennard-Jones model for liquid carbon disulphide was performed. The partial derivatives of the internal energies and densities with respect to the intermolecular potential parameters were determined by Monte Carlo simulations in the Gibbs ensemble using analytical formulas. The method is an efficient tool for refining effective intermolecular potentials by fitting to experimental saturation properties.
