Computation of the residue curve map for the MTBE chemistry is presented in the program. 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 Niang and Mikitenko, Revue de l?Institut Francais du Petrole, Vol. 53, N° 4, Juillet-Aout, p. 439-462, 1998. This mixture presents a non reactive azeotrope and a pseudo-reactive azeotrope. The same problem was solved using Mathematica and is available at the Wolfram Research Information Center (;search_person_id=1536).
