Abstract:

Vapor pressure data are reported for O-hydroxybenzoic acid, methyl ester, more commonly known as methyl salicylate MeS, and n-hexadecane in the ambient temperature range using a ASTM International West Conshohocken, PA saturation method. Vapor pressure data measured in the current work for MeS cover the temperature range between 10 and 30 C. New data are reported for hexadecane between 0 and 70 C. Both data sets are consistent with literature data and significantly extend the range of measured data to lower temperatures. This report extends the vapor pressure correlation equation for liquid MeS to its melting point and reports correlations for hexadecane solid and liquid. Heats of vaporization over the experimental temperature range are reported for both compounds and heats of sublimation and fusion are derived for solid phase MeS. The vapor pressure curves for MeS and n-hexadecane are similar to those of sulfur mustard HD and VX, respectively.
