|Abstract: ||The group-contribution with association equation of state (GCA-EoS) is applied to represent high-pressure phase equilibria in
mixtures of supercritical gases (carbon dioxide, propane) with fatty oil derivatives, such as mono- and di-glycerides, fatty acids and
fatty acid esters.
Association effects in these mixtures are described by a group-contribution approach using three different association groups: the
hydroxyl group, the acid group and the ester group.
Satisfactory predictions of vapor–liquid equilibria, liquid–liquid equilibria and c1 of binary and ternary mixtures of high-molecular
weight triacyglycerides and their derivatives with carbon dioxide or propane are obtained.
It is shown that the GCA-EoS is a powerful engineering tool for the design and optimization of extraction and fractionation
processes of fatty oil derivatives with supercritical fluids.|
