COSMO-RS

AS A COMPUTATIONAL PREDICTION TOOL FOR THERMODYNAMIC BEHAVIOUR OF FLUID MIXTURE IN SEPARATION PROCESS

 

DATE: 29 OCTOBER 2019

DURATION: 8:30 AM - 5:00PM

VENUE: DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, UNIVERSITY OF MALAYA

 

COSMO-RS (Conductor-like Screening Model for Real Solvent) has attracted much attention due to its ability to describe thermodynamic properties and behaviour of solvents such as ionic liquids. It is a model which combines two methods, i.e. (i) quantum chemical considerations in the form of a conductor-like-screening tool, and (ii) statistical thermodynamics. The combination enables the determination and prediction of thermodynamic properties without requiring experimental data. It is a reliable tool for solvent screening and qualitative prediction of thermodynamic behaviour of fluid mixture.

 

Objective and Outline

The Workshop is to demonstrate the general use of COSMO-RS programme as a computational prediction tool. It will cover the following topics: (a) Theory and background of quantum chemical methods, (b) Introduction to COSMO-RS and its principles, and (c) Applications of COSMO-RS. Participants will be exposed to the relevant theories and will be involved in practical learning sessions.

 

Learning Outcomes

After attending this Workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Perform molecular geometry optimization and create .cosmo files for use in COSMOtherm.
  • Utilize COSMOtherm for specific applications of interest.
  • Demonstrate the importance of computational tools for prediction of thermophysical and thermodynamic properties of fluid mixtures.
