Abstract:

A salt dissolved in a mixed solvent is capable, through preferential association in the liquid phase, of altering the composition of the equilibrium vapour phase. Hence salt effect on vapour-liquid equilibrium relationships provides a potential technique of extractive distillation for systems difficult or impossible to separate by normal rectification. A technical review is presented of the use of dissolved salts as separating agents for extractive distillation. Author
