The hybrid process of the esterification of acetic acid with ethanol, coupled with pervaporation, was studied, and a simple, three-parameter model describing the concentration profiles in the process was built. This work suggests that the activity-based model is a better method for predicting concentration profiles than the concentration model, especially in the range of higher component concentrations in which the thermodynamic constants calculated on the basis of concentrations are not true… CONTINUE READING
