Some important sources for phase equilibrium data are:

Dechema Chemistry Data Series: several volumes on VLE, LLE, gas solubility, heat of mixing, azeotropes of many binary mixtures as well as some multicomponent mixtures;

TRC International Data Series (TRC Database): several volumes on pure component data and - in the TRC database - VLE, LLE of binary mixtures

IUPAC Solubility Data Series: volumes on gas solubility and evaluated data (VLE, LLE) on important systems like water-hydrocarbons and methanol-hydrocarbons;

GPA Research Reports with phase equilibrium data on natural gas dehydration, treating, solid deposition

DIPPR projects publications, particularly for projects 805 and 881
