An investigation of the thermodynamics of phenol-formaldehyde resin at temperatures up to 6000 deg K and pressures up to 100,000 atmospheres. Two sets of equilibrium composition equations are used--one representing a pure gas phase: the other, a heterogeneous system of gas and solid carbon. The results of the computational program are presented in both tabular and graphic form. The latter is a conventional Mollier diagram in which specific enthalpy is plotted against specific entropy, with cross plots of temperature, pressure and molecular weight.
