Heat capacity values are based on the formulas developed by Mallard
and Le Chatelier.
As hydrocarbon gases dissociate when exposed to high temperatures the
heat capacity values for CH4 have a theoretical value above 800°.
Simmersbach in Journal of Chemical Industry, Feb. 28, 1913, page 186,
and in Journal fur Gasbeleuchtung, Dec. 13, 1913, page 1242, gives data
covering his experiments in regard to the decrease in heating value of gases
containing hydrocarbons.```
