Viscosity of liquids: Halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons.
Abstract:ESDU 99022 tabulates the viscosity of 21 halogenated benzenes, 13 halogenated toluenes, 2 halogenated ethylbenzenes, 1 halogenated isopropylbenzene and 3 halogenated naphthalenes at saturation pressure, fortemperatures from just above the melting point to approximately 0.9 of thecritical temperature. Experimental data extracted from the literature were fittedby an equation for the logarithm of dynamic viscosity as a function of reducedtemperature. The equation contains four constants and the values determined for them are tabulated for each compound. The constants were chosen in such a way that within each compound group, their values varied progressively and, simultaneously provided acceptable fits to any reliable data. Viscosities are tabulated at 10 K and 10 degree Celsius intervals, together with an assessment of the uncertainty in each value. The sources of the data for each compound are listed, and the critical temperature is given. It is noted that viscosity increases by 1 per cent for a pressure increase of 1 MPa and an equation is suggested for calculating the effect of pressure up to 50 MPa. A full bibliography is given of the sources consulted.
