This is an update of a series of prior reports on absorption fluids and data, ORNL/Sub/84-47989/1, ORNL/Sub/84-47989/2, and ORNL/Sub/84-47989/3. It covers additional data developed and published mainly during 1985-1988, and cites 44 additional references.

Fluids discussed include combinations of nine different refrigerant compounds, as well as of 30 single, seven binary, and one ternary absorbent compounds. Generally, the nine refrigerants are divided among the following categories of chemical compounds: inorganic (2) and organic (7) (1 amine; 4 alcohols, 2 halogenated compounds). The single absorbent compounds generally are divided as follows: 13 inorganic, 17 organic (3 ethers, 3 amides, 1 amine, 1 ester, 3 ketones, and 6 others). The binary and ternary compounds are various mixtures of two or more single absorbent compounds.

Keywords: absorption, absorption fluid properties
