   Temperature = One temperature: 25 °C

Prepared By:
   M.C. Haulait-Pirson, G.T. Hefter

Experimental Remarks:

   The solubility of 1-hexene in water was reported to be 7.781 x 10-4 mol L-1 at 25 °C.a Assuming a solution density of 1.00 g mL-1 the corresponding mass percent and mole fraction (x1) solubilities calculated by the compilers are respectively, 0.00654 g(1)/100 g sln and 1.40 x 10-5.

Solubility data are also presented as a function of temperature in various salt solutions.

Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
   Table 1  a  It should be noted that although the authors state that the solubility refers to "water" the context in the paper is ambiguous and the data were probably obtained in 0.001 mol L-1 HNO3 solution.

   15 mL of the aqeous medium was equilibrated with 1 mL of (1) by mechanical shaking in a thermostatted glass burette. After settling (judged visually), 5 mL of the aqueous layer was withdrawn and the olefin content determined by titration with bromine using standard procedures.
