Hot potassium carbonate (PC) solution in comparison with amine solution had a decreased energy of regeneration and a high chemical solubility of . To present vapor and liquid equation (VLE) of this system and predict solubility, the ion specific non-electrolyte Wilson-NRF local composition model (isNWN) was used in this study; the framework of this model was molecular. Therefore, it was suitable for both electrolyte and non-electrolyte solutions. The present research employed the NWN model and the Pitzer-Debye-Hückel theory in order to assess the contribution of the excess Gibbs energy of electrolyte solutions in a short and long range. The data of solubility in water and the system of aqueous were correlated in the model considering a temperature range of and a pressure range ofand . The average absolute error of ( ) and ( ) systems were and respectively. The results and comparisons with other models proved that the experimental data were exactly correlated in the model.
