Understanding the thermodynamic behavior of charged and polar systems is essential for the design and development of many important chemical industrial processes, e.g., distillations, extractions, and catalysis. A study on real pure systems and mixtures of charged and/or polar fluids, e.g., aqueous solutions of electrolytes, ionic liquids, and H2S, was carried out. The intermolecular parameters for pure substances were obtained by adjusting the theory to the experimental values of the vapor pressure and saturated liquid densities. Unlike interaction parameters were adjusted to obtain a better description of the thermodynamic properties. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2007 AIChE Annual Meeting (Salt Lake City, UT 11/4-9/2007).
