Original Measurements:
   Schwarz, F.P., J. Chem. Eng. Data. 1977, 22, 273-7.

   Temperature = 8.6 °C - 31.7 °C

Prepared By:
   A. Maczynski

Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
   Two methods were used:
At 25°C the solubility of (1) in (2) was determined from UV absorption measurements and was used as a standard at other temperatures. At other temperatures the spectrofluorimetry method was used.
The sealed fluorescence cells contained 5 mL of the aqueous solution and an excess of (1) were rotated at least 72 h in a water bath, then removed, quickly wiped dry and placed in the fluorimeter.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) source not specified; better than 99.9 mole%, by glc; used as received.
   (2) distilled over KMnO4 and NaOH and passed through a Sephadex column.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: see above.
   Temperature: ± 0.1°C
