Considerations are given to the simultaneous evaporation of both components in a miscible (binary) solution based on the properties of related components. Rates of evaporation of several binary systems of nonpolar organics and of polar organics with water in unstirred solutions were determined and interpreted using the model previously proposed. This study presents an approach to assess the evaporative loss of the volatile solute and solvent components from a (miscible) solution that may become a source of concern as a health risk.
