The SM5.4, SM5.2R, and SM5.0 solvation models are applied to calculate the vapor pressure of 156 molecules. This provides a test of the solvation models, but--even more so--it provides a useful scheme for estimating the vapor pressure at 298 K of any organic molecule for which a few standard descriptors are known or can be estimated.
