   (1) Water; H2O; [7732-18-5]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail
   (2) 1-Decene; C10H20; [872-05-9]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail

Original Measurements:
   Natarajan, G.S.; Venkatachalam, K.A., J. Chem. Eng. Data 1972, 17, 328-9.

   Temperature = 15 °C - 25 °C

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

Experimental Remarks:

   Compiler's note: Although the data have not been measured in pure water the low concentration of the added acid is unlikely to cause the olefin solubility to differ markedly from that in pure water. Further solubility data are given in the paper for 0.05 and 0.1 mol/L HCℓ.

   b  Assuming a solution density of 1.00 g mL-1 at all temperatures.

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 After settling (judged visually), 5 mL of the aqeuous layer was withdrawn and the olefin content determined by titration with bromine using standard procedures.
