Vapor Pressure of Solids and Liquids
Vapor pressure is an important material physical property that defines the amount of vapor phase material that exists in equilibrium with the original material. All materials enter the vapor phase by sublimation (solid – gas) or evaporation (liquid – gas). The vapor pressure of a material at thermodynamic equilibrium is a fundamental property of the material and is only a function of temperature.
With accurate knowledge of this property required by regulatory agencies around the world, being able to properly ascertain vapor pressure is essential in a range of industries.
The vapor pressure of solid and liquid materials can be beneficial in predicting thermodynamic stability in agrichemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers. Maintaining thermodynamic stability is vital for agrichemicals to maintain quality and safety. The DVS Vacuum instrument allows for reliable determination of solid and liquid-vapor pressures and enthalpies of vaporization.
