Thermodynamic properties (log P, pKa) with COSMO-RS
Our COSMO-RS (COnductor like Screening MOdel for Realistic Solvents) program
allows the prediction of many properties of pure fluids, fluid mixtures, and solutions:
- solubilities, partition coefficients (log P, log kOW)
- pKa values
- activity coefficients, solvation free energies, Henry's law constants
- vapor pressures, boiling points, vapor-liquid diagrams binary and ternary mixtures (VLE/LLE)
- excess energies, azeotropes, miscibility gaps
- composition lines, flash points
A database of 1892 compounds (solvents, small molecules) facilitates instantaneous predictions of log P, solubilities, and other properties. Easy to add other molecules to the database with preset ADF calculations. Tutorials show step-by-step how to set up COSMO-RS property calculations with the GUI. Scripting tools enable rapid solvent screening.
