Analytical expression for the temperature dependence of log K

Probably this is a very basic question, but I didn't find its consideration through the forum. PHREEQC uses the expression log K = a + b*T + c/T +d*log10(T) + e/(T^2) to calculate the temperature dependence of log K. What is a standard approach to calculate a, b, c, d, and e, if I know T and log K? I can apply the linear regression in SPSS STATISTICS, but this software ignores c and d because they are highly correlated with other factors. The form of a, b, 0, 0, e provides pretty good results, but probably there is another, more correct way to calculate them.

If the statistics indicate correlation and the fit is as good, I would leave some of the parameters as zero. You will note that many of the analytical expressions do not use all of the parameters.
