Glass Ball as Bullet Solubility System: 1,1,2-Trichloroethane with Water.

   (1) Water; H2O; [7732-18-5]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail
   (2) 1,1,2-Trichloroethane; C2H3Cl3; [79-00-5]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail

Original Measurements:
   Walraevens, R.; Trouillet, P.; Devos, A., Int. J. Chem. Kinet. 6, 777-86 (1974)

   Temperature = 283 K - 353 K

Prepared By:
   A. L. Horvath

Experimental Remarks:

   The temperature dependence of the solubility of 1,1,2-trichlorethane in water versus absolute temperature was expressed by the equation:

log10 (S/mol dm-3)=2070/(T/K) - 15.285+0.0230(T/K), where S=Solubility, and T=absolute temperature.

For example, the calculated solubility derived from the above equation is 4.36 x 10-1 [100 w1] at 298.15 K (compiler).

Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
   A mixture of 1,1,2-trichloroethane and water was preheated to the desired temperature before rapid mixing. The resulting mixture was thermostated and the equilibrium was maintained by vigorous stirring. The concentration of 1,1,2-trichloroethane  in water was determined by gas chromatography.
