Aliases for Components
January 11, 2007
ProMax includes a number of aliases for many of the available components. Depending on the Classification used when selecting components, a single compound might be named in different ways. You may choose the Classification that represents what you would prefer to see in the stream information. Following is an example using i-Butane:
- The Chemical Abstracts Classification lists "Propane, 2-Methyl-".
- The IUPAC Classification lists "2-Methylpropane".
- The PROSIM Classification lists "i-Butane".
In addition to the aforementioned names, selecting All as the Classification lists "Isobutane", the refrigerant designation "R-600a", and the formula representations "i-C4" and "iC4".
