C2H5OH provides ideal gas thermodynamic and transport property data for low pressure gaseous ethanol over the temperature range from 200 K to 6000 K based on property data from McBride et al., (2002).  The reference state for specific enthalpy is based on the enthalpy of formation relative to the elements at 25 C.  The reference state for specific entropy is based on the Third Law of Thermodynamics.  The reference values are from:


Bonnie J. McBride, Michael J. Zehe, and Sanford Gordon

"NASA Glenn Coefficients for Calculating Thermodynamic Properties of Individual Species"

NASA/TP-2002-211556, Sept. 2002



Transport property information were also obtained from Liley, Makita, and Tanaka:


The low density viscosity correlation is applicable (with an uncertainty of 6%) for 352 K< T < 1000 K

The low density thermal conductivity correlation is applicable (with a 10% uncertainty) for 352 K < T < 600 K
