Abstract:

A new equation for salt effect in vapor-liquid equilibrium is presented, which correlates temperature and the liquid-phase concentrations of all three components with equilibrium vapor composition, for isobaric systems consisting of a binary to which a salt has been added to saturation. The equation was tested successfully with literature data for 12 ethanol-water-salt systems, yielding a better fit for all 12 systems than the one-constant equation of Johnson and Furter, and with the confidence level for the comparison in excess of 99.9 for six of the systems tested.
