Abstract

"In the separation of a system of liquids by distillation the ease with which they may be separated is most clearly indicated by the relative volatility; the greater the value of the relative volatility, the greater the ease of separation.

A system that contains compounds whose boiling points are spread over a relatively small temperature range is not readily separated by distillation. The addition of a substance that reduces the vapor pressure of one of the components, while having little or no effect on the others, adds to the ease of separation and consequently would decrease the initial size and cost of equipment.

There have been several publications containing data for ternary systems which consist of two liquid components and an inorganic salt whose solubility is considerably greater in one component than the other. The results of these studies have brought out interesting effects of salt additions such as increased relative volatilities, shifting of azeotropes, and in some instances, complete inversion of the binary system.

This investigation was aimed at determining the effect of the alkaline earth chlorides on the acetic acid-water system"--Introduction, page 1.
