Solubility System: 7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene with Water (Original Report)
(2) Water, H2O; [7732-18-5] NIST Chemistry WebBook
The corresponding mass percent calculated by the compiler is 6.1 × 10-6 g(1)/100 g sln.
A saturated solution of (1) in (2) was vigorously stirred in a 250 mL flask for 24 hrs. and subsequently settled at 25 °C for at least 48 hrs. Then the saturated solution was decanted and filtered and 50-100 mL extracted with approximately 5 mL of cyclohexane in a separatory funnel. After shaking for 2 hrs. the cyclohexane extract was removed for analysis. An Aminco-Browman spectrophotofluorometer (American Instruments Ltd.) was used for analysis. Many details are given in the paper.

(2) doubly distilled.
Solubility: ±0.0006 mg(1) dm-3 sln (maximum deviation from several determinations)
