Liquid–Liquid Equilibria of Oxygenate Fuel Additives with Water at 298.15 K: Ternary and Quaternary Aqueous Systems of Diisopropyl Ether and Hydrocarbons with 2-Propanol

  • Yao Chen

Experimental tie-line data were determined for one ternary system, water + diisopropyl ether + n-heptane and two quaternary systems, water + diisopropyl ether + 2-propanol + n-heptane or toluene at 298.15 K and ambient pressure. The experimental liquid–liquid equilibrium data were successfully correlated using a modified UNIQUAC model with ternary and quaternary mixture parameters, in addition to the binary ones. The calculated results were also compared with those obtained from an extended UNIQUAC model of Nagata [Fluid Phase Equilib. 54, 191 (1990)].
