Solubility System: tert-Pentylbenzene with Water (Original Report)

Temperature: 25°C
Experimental Remarks:
The solubility if tert-pentylbenzene in water at 25°C ws reported to be 0.00105 g(1)/100 g sln.
The corresponding mole fraction, x1, calculated by the compilers is 1.27 × 10-6.

A mixture of (1) and (2) was rotated for twnty hours in a constant temperature bath at 25°C. A sample (5-20 mL) of the aqueous phase was withdrawn and extracted with a measured volume of hexane (10-50 mL) by shaking in a glass-stoppered Erlenmeyer flask. Next, the absorbance of the hexane phase was measured against a hexane blank on the Beckman spectrophotometer.
