MAKE | Laboratory 6.2: Distillation: Purify Ethanol.
The most common two-component mixture that gives a minimum-boiling-point azeotrope is the ethanol-water system. The azeotrope has a composition of 96%. Phase Equillbira- low boling azeotrope? A mixture of 95% ethanol and 5% water has the lowest boiling point of all possible compositions of.
boiling point of ethanol and water azeotrope
Aug 24, 2009. For example, ethanol forms a positive azeotrope with water. The boiling point of a mixture of 95.6% ethanol (by weight) with 4.4% water is 78.1. Indeed 78.1?C is the minimum temperature at which any ethanol/water solution can boil. It is generally true that a positive azeotrope boils at a lower temperature.
