CO provides ideal gas thermodynamic properties for carbon monoxide valid over the temperature range from 200 K to 6000 K based on the property information in 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:

Transport property correlations are implemented using data from provided by N.B. Vargaftik, Y.K. Vinogradov, V.S. Yargin, V.S., Handbook of Physical Properties of Liquids and Gases, 3rd ed, 1996, ISBN 1-56700-063-0.  The viscosity correlation is applicable for temperatures between 73.1 K and 1273.1 K.  The thermal conductivity correlation is applicable for temperatures between 80 K and 2200 K.    



Note that CO provides thermodynamic properties assuming ideal gas behavior.  Use CARBONMONOXIDE to provide real fluid properties in the subcooled, saturated mixture, and superheated regimes.
