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 pool boiling of binary mixtures is widely available in literature, while research on forced convective boiling of mixtures had a rush only over the last few years. The present paper provides a brief review of recent research carried out in pool and forced convective boiling of binary mixtures. Un upgrade of the predictive pools, either empirical or theoretical, is also accomplished for both the situations. Finally the results of an activity in progress at ENEA on forced convective boiling of R 12/R 114 are presented.
