**Abstract**

The accurate description of the phase equilibria of CO2 and n-alkane multicomponent mixtures over a wide range of temperature, pressure, and n-alkane molecular weight, requires the models that are both consistent and mathematically flexible for such highly non-ideal systems. In this study, a predictive correlation was proposed for the vapor-liquid equilibrium data (VLE) of CO2 and n-alkane ternary systems, based on the Peng-Robinson equation of state (PR EOS), coupled to cubic mixing rules (CMRs). The ternary interaction parameters (TIP) correlation is developed using binary VLE data and tested for CO2 + n-alkane+ n-alkane ternary systems. For this purpose, binary VLE data of CO2 + n-alkane and n-alkane + n-alkane systems for n-alkane from C3 to C24, covering a total of about 70 references, used to correlate TIP in the ranges of 0.5-31 MPa and 230-663 K. Two temperature-dependent TIP correlations, based on acentric factor ratio, have been tuned with more than 2000 data points of the CO2 + n-alkane and the n-alkane + n-alkane binary systems with AARD of 3.13% and 6.71%, respectively. The generalized predictive correlation was proposed based on the proper three-body interaction contributions and successfully tested for VLE data of the CO2 + n-alkane + n-alkane ternary systems.
