High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Relative volatility is
a measure comparing the vapor pressures of the components in a
liquid mixture of chemicals. This quantity is widely used in
designing large industrial distillation processes. In effect, it
indicates the ease or difficulty of using distillation to separate
the more volatile components from the less volatile components in a
mixture. By convention, relative volatility is usually denoted as .
Relative volatilities are used in the design of all types of
distillation processes as well as other separation or absorption
processes that involve the contacting of vapor and liquid phases in
a series of equilibrium stages. Relative volatilities are not used
in separation or absorption processes that involve components
reacting with each other (for example, the absorption of gaseous
carbon dioxide in aqueous solutions of sodium hydroxide).
