A systematic and rigorous method for synthesizing azeotropic-distillation systems, which is of utmost practical importance, is yet to be fully established. The available methods are based mainly on heuristics and graphical procedures. Our experience indicates that even in synthesizing a simple separation network, the structure of the optimal solution may be counterintuitive. For synthesizing a complex network structure necessary for an azeotropicdistillation system, therefore, the probability… CONTINUE READING
