The vapor pressure of saline water is an essential thermodynamic property for desalination processes that depend mainly on evaporation. This chapter introduces multicomponent models, correlation, and data used to estimate vapor pressure at various salinity and temperature values. Besides, the calculated vapor pressure values from the correlations and methods are compared and assessed against the experimental data of seawater. Based on their accuracy and operating conditions, some correlations and methods are recommended in this chapter. Furthermore, the codes used for the investigated methods are provided.
