Title: Solubility of methane in N-methylpyrrolidone in the presence of water

Abstract

Various organic solvents, among which N-methylpyrrolidone possesses high absorption capacity, are widely used for the purification of gases from sulfur compounds and carbon dioxide. The gas sent for purification usually contains water vapors, which, dissolving in the absorbent, change its absorption capacity. In this work the authors investigated the equilibrium solubility of methane in N-methylpyrrolidone with various water contents. These data are necessary for calculating the amount and composition of the gases for ventilating and regenerating a saturated absorbent. The work is part of an investigation conducted to evaluate physical solvents for the purification of natural gas.
