Organic Mixture's Boiling Point

  1. Dec 6, 2006 #1
    If one has a mixture of borneol (standard bp: 210 C) and verbenone (standard bp: 227.5 C), would the mixture's boiling point theoretically be the average of the two (218.75 C), or is there something else I have to take into consideration (vapor pressure)?

    Raoult's law and the Antoine equation would be a good place to start.
