Critical Evaluation:

   Quantitative solubility data for 1,5-dimthylnaphthalene (1) in water (2) have been reported in the publications listed in Table 1. No data have been reported on the solubility of water in 1,5-dimethylnaphthalene.

The original data and related information in both of these publications are compiled in the Data Sheets immediately following this Critical Evaluation.

The two values available (Table 1), obtained by different methods, are in reasonable agreement and their mean can be considered as a Tentative value. (Table 2).
