solid-liquid phase equilibria
Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Abstract Solid-liquid phase equilibria of the carbon tetrachloride + p-xylene and the carbon tetrachloride+benzene systems have been investigated at temperatures from 278 to 323 K and pressures up to 500 MPa using a high-pressure optical vessel. The uncertainties in the measurements of temperature, pressure, and composition are within ±0.1 K, ±0.5 MPa, and ±0.001 mole fraction, respectively. In the former system, which has an intermolecular compound with a congruent melting point, the freezing temperature at a constant composition increases monotonously with increasing pressure. The two eutectic points of this system shift to higher temperatures and richer compositions of the compound with increasing pressure. In the latter system, which has two intermolecular compounds with incongruent melting points, the one compound disappears under the present experimental conditions and the incongruent melting point of the other compound changes to the congruent melting point under high pressures. The solid-liquid coexistence curves of these systems can be correlated satisfactorily by the equation previously proposed.
