Abstract: In this paper, a novel approach for establishing the route for process intensification through the application of two developed softwares to characterize reactive mixtures is presented. A robust algorithm was developed to build up reactive phase diagrams and to predict the existence and the location of reactive azeotropes. The proposed algorithm does not depend on initial estimates and is able to compute all reactive azeotropes present in the mixture. It also allows verifying if there are no azeotropes, which are the major troubles in this kind of programming. An additional software was developed in order to calculate reactive residue curve maps. Results obtained with the developed program were compared with-the. published in the literature for several mixtures, showing the efficiency and robustness of the developed softwares.
