Propane (C_{3}H_{8}).
Models
The NERD parameters are:
Molecule propane 3.857 3.93 102.6 K 45.8 K
Critical properties
The pressure, temperature and density at the critical point have been calculated for a virial equation of state using the TraPPEUA force field, and are given in Table I of ^{[1]}.
Virial coefficients
The virial coefficients  as a function of temperature for the TraPPE force field have been tabulated by Schultz and Kofke ^{[2]}.
