Abstract

The applicability of the Wolf method for calculating electrostatic interactions is verified for simulating vapor-liquid equilibria of hydrogen sulfide, methanol, and carbon dioxide. Densities, chemical potentials, and critical properties are obtained with Monte Carlo simulations using the Continuous Fractional Component version of the Gibbs Ensemble. Saturated vapor pressures are obtained from NPT simulations. Excellent agreement is found between simulation results and data from literature (simulations using the Ewald summation). It is also shown how to choose the optimal parameters for the Wolf method. Even though the Wolf method requires a large simulation box in the gas phase, due to the lack of screening of electrostatics, one can consider the Wolf method as a suitable alternative to the Ewald summation in VLE calculations.
