Absorption data for COS and N,O in aqueous solutlons of N-methyldiethanolamine (MDEA), ethylene glycol, and sulfolane (tetrahydrothiophene 1,l-dioxide) at 298 K and solubility data for COS in water at temperatures ranging from 298 to 338 K are presented. Also density, viscosity, N,O solubility, and N,O dlffusivity data are reported for a wide range of aqueous aikanolamine solutions, aqueous mlxtures of alkanoiamines, and solutions of MDEA in water/ethanol. It is shown that an analogy between COS and N,O with respect to gas solubility in aqueous solutions of ethylene glycol and sulfolane holds up to about 25 mass %. This seems to justify, for engineering purposes, the application of this analogy for the estimation of COS solubilitles in diluted aqueous amine solutions. Direct verificatlon of a COS-N,O analogy was provided by absorption of N,O and COS into aqueous MDEA solutions in a laminar film reactor.
