    Abstract

    Recent years have seen a rapid development in e-learning technologies. Specific topics, however, may require additional teaching tools created particularly for their unique characteristics. It is important that these tools are developed with learning outcomes in mind, and if possible are in a format easily accessible. We have developed a graphic web application for the teaching of liquid–liquid equilibria using ternary phase diagrams. This application allows students to draw liquid–liquid 2-phase equilibrium curves and calculate phase separation for a given mixture; the correct result is then produced with hints for the students if they get stuck. Student usage figures and opinions have been collected for the application during trial use on a combined full-time taught and distance learning course in Chemical Engineering at The University of Manchester. The current students have found this application useful for developing their understanding of liquid–liquid equilibria.
