Abstract : Isobaric vapor-liquid equilibrium data at atmospheric pressure are reported for 17 systems, each consisting of water, an alcohol (methanol or ethanol), and either a salt or a mixed pair of salts having a common anion, dissolved to saturation in the boiling liquid phase. The matrix of four salts employed consisted of the sodium and potassium and bromides and iodides. Solubility data are reported in terms of saturation salt concentration as a function of alcohol-water proportionality in the liquid. Some of these salts and salt mixtures were found capable of eliminating the ethanol-water azeotrope completely. (Author)
