Methanol (CH3OH)


Haughney, Ferrario and McDonald[edit]


Jorgensen model (OPLS)[edit]


Leeuwen-Smit model[edit]


Schnabel et al.[edit]

[5] [6]



Virial coefficients[edit]

The virial coefficients for various models of methanol have been calculated using Mayer sampling Monte Carlo [8].

Phase diagram[edit]

The phase diagram (pressure-temperature plane) for methanol using the OPLS force field parameters has been calculated by Gonzalez Salgado and Vega [9]. The melting point at room pressure for this model is 215 K.
