This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Ideal{gas thermochemical properties (enthalpy, entropy, Gibbs energy, and heat capacity, Cp) of 49 alkanolamines potentially suitable for CO2 capture applications and their carbamate and protonated forms were calculated using two high{order electronic structure methods, G4 and G3B3 (or G3//B3LYP). We also calculate for comparison results from the commonly used B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ method. This data is useful for the construction of molecular{based thermodynamic models of CO2 capture processes involving these species. The Cp data for each species over the temperature range 200 K{1500 K is presented as functions of temperature in the form of NASA seven-term polynomial expressions, permitting the set of thermochemical properties to be calculated over this temperature range. The accuracy of the G3B3 and G4 results is estimated to be 1 kcal/mol and the B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ results are of nferior quality..
