Knowledge of solid–liquid equilibria (SLE) and vapor–liquid equilibria (VLE) for mixtures containing deep eutectic solvents (DESs) is of paramount importance. We have conducted experiments to obtain additional data for SLE systems and then used the e-NRTL model to predict the VLE behavior in mixtures of DESs comprised of choline chloride (ChCl), sorbitol (S), and water (W). The systems under investigation include three 2-component systems (S/W, ChCl/W, ChCl/S), and one 3-component system (DES/W) where the DES is obtained by mixing ChCl and S at a molar ratio of 1. Using the e-NRTL activity coefficient model, the adjusted binary interaction parameters of the proposed model are determined solely from the experimental SLE data obtained from this work and also those in the literature. There is an excellent agreement between the SLE solubility data and the e-NRTL results. The tuned model is then used to predict the bubble pressure in three aqueous systems (S/W, ChCl/W, and DES/W) with an overall AARD value of 2.21%. The excellent agreement between the experimental and predicted VLE data demonstrates the viability of the proposed thermodynamic modelling framework to represent the equilibrium systems containing DESs. The outcome from our study can be used to relate the SLE and VLE data without the need to perform experiments for both cases for the given system of interest. Compared to the VLE experiments, the SLE tests are much simpler and safer because there is little compressibility and the effect of pressure on solubility is minimal which makes it possible to conduct SLE tests at room conditions (at least for liquids with negligible non-ideality). Therefore, conducting the high-pressure VLE calculations without the need to perform VLE experiments and through SLE experimental data alone will be of practical significance.
