Critical Evaluation:

All the available solubility data for bromodichloromethane (1) in water (2) are summarized in Table 1.

The data are in very poor agreement and in the absence of other independent studies it is not possible to determine which values are the more reliable. Further studies will be necessary before even tentative values can be assigned. Even so, it may be observed that the solubility trend for halogenated hydrocarbon - water systems, as presented in the Preface, provided some support for the mass per cent (1) value, 100 w1, of 1.618 at 298.15 K (ref. 1).
