Abstract

One major sustainable development goal is to produce chemicals and fuels from renewable resources, such as biomass, rather than from fossil fuels. A key part of this development is data on the properties of chemicals that appear in this bio-based supply chain. Many of the chemicals have yet to be studied thoroughly, and data on their properties is lacking. Here, we present new experimental data on the properties of 11 bio-compounds, along with PC-SAFT parameters for modeling their properties. The measured data includes vapor pressures, compressed densities, and refractive indexes. The 11 bio-compounds are tetrahydrofuran, 2-pentanone, furfural, 2-methoxy-4-methylphenol, 2-methylfuran, dihydrolevoglucosenone, cyclopentyl methyl ether, 2-sec-butylphenol, levoglucosenone, γ-valerolactone, and 2,6-dimethoxyphenol.
