An equation proposed by Darken, including the thermodynamic factor and tracer diffusion coefficients of solvent and solute, was adopted to correlate the diffusion coefficients for naphthalene and dimethylnaphthalene (DMN) isomers in supercritical carbon dioxide and the correlated results were compared with the experimental data. IML equation of state with mixing rules and combining rules containing two adjustable interaction parameters were used for calculation of the thermodynamic factor. By using the interaction parameters adjusted to the solubility data, the concentration dependence of diffusion coefficients and their anomaly near the critical point of carbon dioxide can be quantitatively represented. In order to improve the reliability of experimental results, some re-measured diffusion coefficient data for naphthalene, 2,6- and 2,7-DMN at 308.2 K, and new data for naphthalene at 318.2 K and for 2,3-DMN at 308.2 K are presented.
