The effect of altitude on distillation temperature

Acuyo - 27-5-2017 at 17:48

I assume there is an effect, is there a formula that can be applied to ~correct temp for altitude?

1. Find the "air pressure vs altitude" calculator via Google.
2. Find the "pressure vs boiling point" nomograph at the Sigma-Aldrich website.

There might be a more direct way.
