Abstract: The objective of the study is to determine and to analyze azeotropic points for the Methanol/ Methyl Acetate Mixture, at different temperatures and to show it colligated variables values on diagram plots. The methodology used was the creation of an algorithm that makes the calculations for a given range of temperature, and the calculations are based on vapor-liquid equilibrium equations. By finding all the azeotropic points, readers will know the limits of temperature where it has or not an azeotrope, with their parameters of pressure and vapor-liquid molar compositions.
