Boiling of binary mixtures is characterized by a close linking between heat and mass transfer processes, with the evaporation rate usually being limited by the mass transfer process. This is significantly different from single-component systems where interfacial mass transfer rates are normally very high. Information on forced convective boiling of mixtures is not so wide in the literature, but it had a rush over the last few years. The present paper provides a brief review of experimental results obtained in forced convective boiling of binary mixtures. An upgrade of the predictive tools, either empirical or theoretical, is also accomplished.
