The viscosity of gaseous HFC-143a(1,1,1-trifluoroethane) was measured with an oscillating-disk viscometer of the Maxwell type at temperatures from 298.15 to 423.15 K and at pressures up to the saturated vapor pressure at each temperature under subcritical conditions or up to 9 MPa under supercritical conditions. Intermolecular potential parameters of HFC-143a for the extended corresponding states were determined from the viscosity data at 0.1 MPa. An empirical viscosity equation as functions of temperature and density is proposed to interpolate the present experimental results.
