Critical Evaluation:

         The 1,3-dibromopropane (1) and water (2) binary system is treated in two parts; part 1 is 1,3-dibromopropane (1) in water (2) and part 2 is water (2) in 1,3-dibromopropane (1).

      Part 1. The solubility of 1,3-dibromopropane (1) in water (2) has been studied by three work groups in the narrow temperature range from 298.15 to 303.15 K. Within the narrow temperature range for the solubility data of Gross and Saylor,1 of Chitwood,2 and of Mackay et al.,3 the agreement is very good. In the absence of other independent studies, it is not possible to say whether or not the solubility behavior between 298.15 and 303.15 K should increase or decrease with increasing temperature. Further studies will be necessary before the slope of the solubility curve can be established. All the available data for the solubility of 1,3-dibromopropane (1) in water (2) in weight percent and mole fraction are summarized in Table 11.

      Part 2. The solubility of water (2) in 1,3-dibromopropane (1) has been studied only by Mackay et al.3 and there are no other measurements for comparison. Therefore, it is not possible to perform a critical evaluation. The readers are referred to the relevant compilation sheet for further details.
