Such an investigation has a commercial aspect. A research of this kind is valuable to the paint industry, and also for any industry interested in preparing very pure liquids by distillation. The following investigation limits itself to a study of. boiling point curves of mixtures of various aliphatic alcohols with benzene or toluene. These systems are reputed to have a minimum boiling which would be very valuable in the paint industry as they evaporate very rapidly and still have ·good sound properties.
