PCSAFT

Polar perturbed-hard-chain statistical-association fluid theory

This is an extension of the PC-SAFT EOS: Terms have been added that account for dipolar and quadrupolar electrostatic interactions.

adjustable parameters: 3 (The dipole moment, the quadrupole moment, and the polarizability are not considered adjustable.)

The critical compression factor is too high; the EOS should not be fitted to the critical volume.

The latest—and also recommended—version is PCP-SAFT2008. The older versons PC-SAFTP1, PC-SAFTP2, and PCP-SAFT2006 are merely kept for comparison.
