Title: Solubility of Benzoic Acid in Pure Solvents and Binary Mixtures

Jyothi Thati, Fredrik L. Nordstrom and Ake C. Rasmuson

Abstract:

The solubility of benzoic acid has been determined in ethanol, toluene, heptane, cyclohexane, pentane, and chloroform and in binary mixtures of ethanol + heptane and ethanol + toluene, in the temperature range of (278.15 to 323.15) K. The solubility is high in ethanol, reasonably high in chloroform, lower in toluene, and quite low in the remaining three pure solvents. In the binary mixtures the solubility of benzoic acid increases with increasing concentration of ethanol. The solubility of benzoic acid increases with increasing temperature.
