Abstract

The purpose of this research project was to determine more closely the liquid vapor equilibrium curve and the boiling point and composition of the azeotrope formed in the system isopropyl alcohol - dibromomethane. This system is reported in Horsley's book from Lecat as forming an azeotrope at a bioling point less than 81.0 degrees Celsius. Both components have boiling points of less than 100 degrees Celsius and their refractive indices are well separated, thus making investigation with fairly simple, but accurate apparatus possible.
