Origin of azeotrope; from a- + Classical Greek zein, to boil (see yeast) + -trope
A liquid mixture of two or more substances that boils at a constant characteristic temperature lower or higher than any of its components and that retains the same composition in the vapor state as in the liquid state.
Origin of azeotropea–1 + Greek zein, to boil; see zeolite + Greek -tropos, turning; see –tropous.
From Ancient Greek α- (a-, “no”) + ζέειν (zeein, “to boil”) + τρόπος (tropos, “state”).
