LEON-PULIDO, Jeffrey et al. Thermochemical Study of Gasoline Additive Production Tert-Amyl-Methyl-Ether (TAME). Rev. ion [online]. 2019, vol.32, n.1, pp.87-95.  Epub June 28, 2019. ISSN 0120-100X.

Reactive production and separation processes are widely used in the process industry in general. Specifically, the distillation process requires the equilibrium study of the mixtures are fundamental to the separation process. In the case of Tert-Amyl-Methyl-Ether (TAME) works as an oxygenator additive, improving the mechanical performance of the vehicle. Thus, the study of the thermochemical behavior and phenomena of the different components involved in the TAME production system are calculated for the later understanding of the purification project. Therefore, the objective of the study is to analyze the mixed components using the Aspen Plus V9® process simulator. The UNIFAC thermodynamic model was used to estimate the equilibrium binary parameters of the reagents and reactives calculated with the simulator. The observation of the analyzed aspects presents the presence of azeotrops in different temperature conditions, nine points for different temperatures of binary mixtures were estimated in the thermochemical study.
