PVT properties in the vapor phase of cis-1,3,3,3-tetrafluoropropene (R1234ze(Z)) were measured by a multiple expansion method in the temperature range from 353 to 413 K and at pressures up to 2.7 MPa. Thirty data along four isotherms are obtained in the temperatures between 353 and 413 K. The vapor pressures at the temperatures were also measured by adding a sample of R1234ze(Z) to a sample cell at the vapor–liquid equilibrium conditions. The uncertainties in temperature and pressure measurements are estimated to be within 6 mK and 0.3 kPa, respectively. The expanded uncertainty in density measurement is estimated within no greater than 0.12% (k = 2). The obtained PVT properties and vapor pressures are compared with the existing equation of state.
