Abstract

An artificial neural network model is proposed for the surface tension of liquid organic fatty acids covering a wide temperature range. A set of 2051 data collected for 98 acids (including carboxylic, aliphatic, and polyfunctional) was considered for the training, testing, and prediction of the resulting network model. Different architectures were explored, with the final choice giving the best results, in which the input layer has the reduced temperature (temperature divided by the critical point temperature), boiling temperature, and acentric factor as an independent variable, a 41-neuron hidden layer, and an output layer consisting of one neuron. The overall absolute percentage deviation is 1.33%, and the maximum percentage deviation is 14.53%. These results constitute a major improvement over the accuracy obtained using corresponding-states correlations from the literature.
