Surface tensions of the binary and ternary mixtures equation based on the thermodynamics and Gibbs free energy applied to the liquid-vapor interface is proposed. The activity coefficient used to determine the surface tension equation was correlated by the Wilson, NRTL and UNIFAC method. The thickness of liquid-vapor interfaces was deduced from molar surface areas by fitting the experimental data. A further correlation of surface tensions of binary mixtures based on friction theory applied to the liquid-vapor interfaces was presented. The Peng-Robinson equation of state was chosen to describe the two phase systems. As a result, the method was proved to have a high accurate correlation of the surface tension of binary mixtures.
