We combined the density gradient theory (DGT) with the PC-SAFT and Peng-Robinson equations of state to model the homogeneous droplet nucleation and compared it to the classical nucleation theory (CNT) and experimental data. We also consider the effect of capillary waves on the surface tension. DGT predicts nucleation rates smaller than the CNT and slightly improves the temperature-dependent deviation of the predicted and experimental nucleation rates.
