Boiling point?

  1. Oct 3, 2008 #1
    boiling point??

    What is a literature boiling point??
    Is it the same thing as just normal boiling point?
    What does this temperature tell us in regards to distillation of alcohol? (alcohol properties)

    Re: boiling point??

    "in the literature" means the published accepted value.

    I think this is a diferent question.

    so the boiling point I find on MSDS or something is ok??
    and about the question regarding distillation...
    yeah, the next question is a different question..
    so if a literature boiling point of a certain alcohol is obtained from distillation, what can you figure out from that value?

    Yes, or from the CRC handbook etc.
    Boiling point does vary slightly pressure so the published value will be for sae level / 1 atmosphere.
