High Pressure Ternary Equilibrium in Aqueous — Hydrocarbon Systems
The possibility of using water as a solvent for aromatics extraction was first demonstrated by Arnold and Coghlan  in 1948 when they successfully extracted a nitration grade toluene from reformed naphtha. Experimental and theoretical work performed since then has led to a better understanding of the phase behavior of these systems. It is now possible to predict at least qualitatively and in a few instances quantitatively their binary equilibrium.
