A large number of experimental equilibrium constants
for the reactions involved in methanol synthesis were collected or calculated
from several literature sources. Equilibrium relationships were
derived from basic thermochemical data and subsequently fitted to the
experimental results by adapting only the Gibbs energy of formation
values for CH3OH and CO. Very small changes of these parameters as
compared to the original literature values were sufficient to obtain
accurate relationships that adequately describe the experimental results.
