The precise liquid-liquid equilibrium data are necessary to design extraction processes. The triangular diagram in which each apex represents a pure component illustrates the ternary system's mutual solubility curve and tie line. This requires that sufficient equilibrium data be available with difficulty that these data cannot be inserted in the computer; Several models have been devised for the correlation of equilibrium data. In general, there are two main approaches; one of them uses the activity with a model for the activity coefficient, such as the Non-Random Two liquid equation[NTRL]; the other correlates tie line data with equations such as that of Hand, Othmer-Tobias and Ishida correlations. In this study, Equilibrium data for the quaternary system (MTBE-hydroqinone-phenol-water) were obtained from the literature. Then an extension of hand was correlated for this quaternary system. And the results were good and gave a correlation coefficient near unity. It recommended that the same calculations have to be carried out by hand model obtained with the comparison of the results for the quaternary systems.
