Abstract: An analytical equation of state (EoS) proposed by Ihm-Song-Mason (ISM) [J Chem Phys, 94 (1991) 3839] has been employed to calculate the density of normal alcohols from methanol to heptanol. The best available values of the Lennard-Jones LJ (12,6) parameters have been taken to evaluate the second virial coefficient for each compounds required by the EoS. The second virial coefficient is not very sensitive to the feature of the intermolecular potential. The remaining parameters in the EoS depend only on the repulsive part of the potential. Consequently, they are insensitive to the details of the interaction potential. The calculated second virial coefficients in conjunction to the other temperature-dependent parameters of the EoS have been employed to predict the density of alcohols (C1-C7). A comparison between the experimental values of density and the calculated values from ISM EoS has been made. Agreement with experiment is very good for all of the compounds.
