This is an EOS of the “generalized cubics” category. In comparison to simpler EOS, it has 2 additional parameters for the density dependence of the attraction term, and 2 parameters for its temperature dependence. For the latter, a correlation with the acentric factor is available.

The equation gives good vapour pressure curves and density data for many compounds. Note: If there are 3 real roots for the volume, the smallest one may be in a physically forbidden range.

adjustable parameters: 6
