In this work, a predictive method is applied to determine the vapor-liquid-hydrate three-phase equilibrium condition of methane hydrate in the presence of ionic liquids and other additives. The Peng-Robinson-Stryjek-Vera Equation of State (PRSV EOS) incorporated with the COSMO-SAC activity coefficient model through the first order modified Huron-Vidal (MHV1) mixing rule is used to evaluate the fugacities of vapor and liquid phases. A modified van der Waals and Platteeuw model is applied to describe the hydrate phase. The absolute average relative deviation in predicted temperature (AARD-T) is 0.31% (165 data points, temperature ranging from 273.6 to 291.59 K, and pressure ranging from 1.01 to 20.77 MPa). The method is further used to screen for the most effective thermodynamic inhibitors from a total of 1722 ionic liquids and 574 electrolytes (combined from 56 cations and 41 anions). The valence number of ionic species is found to be the primary factor of inhibition capability, with the higher valence leading to stronger inhibition effects. The molecular volume of ionic liquid is of secondary importance, with the smaller size resulting in stronger inhibition effects. ? 2013 American Chemical Society.
