Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
t/°CConcentration c1 [mol dm**-3]
   Constant temperature bath, centrifuge, thermometer, and an HPLC equipped with uv absorption and fluorescence detection.
Excess solute and solvent were placed in glass vials and allowed to equilibrate with rotation for 12-24 hours in a constant temperature bath. Prior to analysis samples were centrifuged at a minimum of 300 RCF for 15 minutes. The clear supernatant solution was analyzed by  reversed phase liquid chromatography with either fluorescence or uv detection.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Purity not given, commercial sample of unspecified source, was used as received.
   (2) Purity and chemical source not given, purification procedure not specified.

Estimated Errors:

   Temperature: T/K: ± 1. c1: ± 5% (relative error; compiler).
