    Abstract

    Residue curve maps, flash simulations and column simulation are used to investigate the effect of various entrainers with different polarity an esterification with isopropanol through Entrainer-based Reactive Distillation. Non-polar solvents are predicted to be good entrainers. For a more quantitative selection of entrainers further research concerning the thermodynamics is needed.
