Experimental Remarks:

   The solubility of 1,2,3-trimethylbenzene in water at 25°C was reported to be 75.2 mg(1)/kg(2). The corresponding mass percent and mole fraction, x1, calculated by the compilers are 0.00752 g(1)/100 g sln and 1.126 × 10–5.

Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
   The concentration of (1) in (2) was determined by gas chromatography.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Aldrich Chemical Co. or Matheson Coleman and Bell purified by distillation through a Vigreageaux Column; 94.4% purity determined by gas chromatography.
   (2) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: 0.6 (the standard deviation of the mean for six replicates).
   Temperature: ± 0.1°C
