A method for the determination of tie-lines in ternary liquid systems

Authors


Abstract

A method is described for the determination of tie-lines in ternary liquid systems which may be used when a satisfactory method of chemical analysis is unavailable. The technique is graphical and is based upon the lever rule principle. The method is illustrated with the system acetic acid-furfural-water at 25 ± 0.05°. Results indicate the method is accurate and capable of good precision.
