Experimental Remarks:

   The solubility of 1-methylnaphthalene in water at 25°C was reported to be 25.8 mg(1)/kg (2) and 1.81 × 10–4 mol(l) L (2).

The corresponding mass percent and mole fraction, x1, calculated by the compiler are 2.58 × 10–3 g(1)/100 g sln and 3.27 × 10–6.

Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
   A mixture of 500 mL (2) and 0.001 mol (1) was equilibrated in an Erlenmeyer flask for 12 h (agitation) + 24 h (stationary). The saturated solution, 100 mL was extracted with hexane, concentrated by evaporation under nitrogen and analyzed by glc. A 5700 A Hewlett-Packard instrument equipped with dual compensating columns and flame ionization detectors was employed.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) source not specified; analytical grade; used as received; no impurities by glc.
   (2) doubly distilled; free of trace organics.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ± 1.2 mg(1)/kg(2) (from eight determinations)
   Temperature: ± 0.5°C
