Nomenclature for Phase Diagrams with Particular
Reference to Vapour-Liquid and Liquid-Liquid Equlibiria
Andreas Bolz, Ulrich
K. Deiters, Cor J. Peters, and Theo
W. de Loos
Abstract: The phase diagrams of binary fluid mixtures
are classified with regard to the topology of their critical curves and three-phase
curves. A new nomenclature for the phase diagram classes is proposed, which
can be applied to the previously known as well as to recently discovered phase
diagram classes. The class names of the new nomenclature are systematic and
descriptive; the (P,T) projection of a binary fluid phase diagram can
always be constructed qualitatively from the class name.
