In this second article of the review on the applications of the CPA (Cubic-Plus-Association) equation of state, the focus is placed on cross-associating systems. Various such mixtures are investigated, including (i) systems with two self-associating compounds ( e. g., water-alcohol systems or glycols, mixtures with organic acids, or two alcohols) but also binaries with only one self-associating substance, where solvation is expected (e.g., CO2 or styrene with water). The method of accounting for cross-association ( combining rules) and the association scheme of alcohols are investigated. Finally, the manuscript concludes with a summary of current capabilities and limitations of CPA and a list of future challenges.
