Calcium formate and calcium acetate destructively distilled seems to be the best easiest way to go if you need some for a rxn.can easily be scaled up to create larger amounts quickly.

destructive distillation of calcium acetate gives acetone right? not acetaldehyde

feel free to correct my grammar, or any mistakes i make

Calcium acetate intimately mixed with calcium formate apparently yeilds acetyldehyde and if the mixing is inadequate probably some acetone as well.further back in the thread someone claims to have made 200 mls of acetyldehyde by this method. Also apparently acetylene bubbled through a hgso4 solution yeilds acetyldehyde. Formates + other carboxylic acid salts yeilds the corresponding aldehyde is a well known thing.

VLE Data

Would anyone by chance have access to vapor-liquid-equilibrium data for Acetaldehyde, Ethanol, and Water or any combination thereof?

I am looking for a boiling point chart for varying concentrations.

I do not currently have access to Dortmund data bank, and am unable to find this data on sciencedirect or similar papers.

Thanks kindly.
