Computation of the residue curve map for the MTBE chemistry at 1 atm is presented in the present notebook. The equilibrium, taking place in the liquid phase, transforms methanol and isobutene into MTBE with n-butane being an inert component. Thermodynamic data can be found in the excellent paper by N. Niang and P. Mikitenko, Revue de l’Institut Francais du Petrole, Vol. 53, N 4, Juillet-Aout, pages 439-462, 1998. This mixture presents a non reactive azeotrope and a pseudo-reactive azeotrope.
