MultiBatchDS is a general purpose batch distillation simulation package. Cranium and Synapse can generate the physical property input files needed by MultiBatchDS. A set of five input files are currently generated:
An example set of files is shown below:
To generate these export files, Cranium and Synapse will compile data, estimate properties and regress these values into the parameter needed by the MBDS software. These operations are detailed in a log file named mbds.xlog which is also generated along with the exported files.

|List of chemicals to be exported.
The following MBDS files were generated by exporting seven chemicals (acetic acid, cyclohexanol, ethanol, ethyl acetate, n-hexane, toluene and vinyl chloride).
|Chemical name, synonyms, formula CAS number and constant phyisical properties.
|Parameters for liquid density model as a function of temperature.
|Parameters for liquid and vapor enthalpy models as a function of temperature.
|Parameters for liquid vapor pressure model as a function of temperature.
|Group occurrences of each chemical's molecular structure.
