The Bancroft Point and Vapor-Liquid Equilibria in the System Benzene Plus Isopropanol

Published

Author(s)

J. R. Elliott, James C. Rainwater

Abstract

Vapor-liquid equilibria for the title system indicate azeotropic behavior with the composition of the azeotrope shifting from being benzene-rich at low pressure to isopropanol-rich at high pressure. We attribute this behavior to the nature of the Bancroft point in this system and discuss the prevalence of Bancroft points in general. In a study comprising 1350 pure components, 64,103 Bancroft points were identified.
