Glass Ball as Bullet Solubility System: 2-Heptene with Water

   (1) Water; H2O; [7732-18-5]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail
   (2) 2-Heptene; C7H14; [592-77-8]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail

   G.T. Hefter, School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, Murdoch University, Perth, Australia. July 1985.

Critical Evaluation:

   Quantitative data for the solubility of 2-heptene (1) in water (2) have been reported in the publications listed in Table 1.

The agreement between the two studies is excellent and although the measurement temperatures differ slightly this effect should be minor. The values in Table 1 are therefore Recommended.

Solubility values of 2-heptene in various salt solutions have also been reported (ref 3) but, although in broad agreement with the values given in Table 1 will not be considered in this Evaluation. No data are available for the solubility of water in 2-heptene.
