Important decisions were the choice of activity coefficient method for the liquid and the binary interaction parameters for the selected method, because these decisions can have a significant influence on the results of the calculations. The UNIQUAC method was selected, with built-in values of the binary interaction parameters for pairs with isopropanol; but for the benzene-water pair, values were taken from the Appendix of the article by Bekiaris, Meski, and Morari, IEC Res., 35, 207-227 (1996). They give the parameters as values of (uij - ujj)/R in K. For the ChemCad program, the parameters Exercise 11.20 (continued) Analysis: (continued) must be given as (uij - ujj) in cal/mol. Therefore, the Bekiaris, Meski, and Morari values were multiplied by 1.987 cal/mol-K. In summary, the following values of (uij - ujj) were used for the ChemCad runs: i j Water Benzene Isopropanol Water ---719.890 109.550 Benzene 1795.85 ---319.618 Isopropanol 300.190 54.883 ---With these values, the computed azeotropes at 1 atm, which deviate somewhat from the above experimental values, were as follows, where the homogeneous azeotropes were determined with the TPYX plot feature of ChemCad and the heterogeneous azeotropes were determined by running three-phase flash calculations with the LLVF model of ChemCad until the assumed feed composition gave vapor and overall liquid compositions that were equal. The most serious deviations are for the ternary heterogeneous azeotrope. From the built-in vapor pressure correlations in ChemCad, the normal boiling points of water and benzene are the same as the above literature values, but the isopropanol value is 82.5oC.

Many liquid-liquid phase equilibrium tie lines are shown. Added to the diagram are the above computed temperatures and compositions for the azeotropes, and estimates of the distillation boundary lines, which divide the composition plot into three distillation regions.
