Critical Evaluation:

         The solubility of 1,3-dichloropropane (1) in water (2) has been studied by six work groups; whereas, the solubility of water (2) in 1,3-dichloropropane (1) has not been investigated yet.

      All the data of six laboratories were compiled or used for the smoothing equation. The combined data points of Gross,1 of Wright and Schaffer,2 of Gross et al., 3 of Chitwood,4 of Leighton and Calo,5 and of Bauduin et al.6 were correlated to obtain the following mass percent (1) equation:

Solubility [100 w1] = - 0.64093 + 3.08718x10-3 (T/K)

      which yielded a standard deviation of 7.67x10-3 in the temperature range from 275 to 303 K.

      The curve obtained from the smoothing equation does not show a minimum over the temperature interval under examination as shown in Fig. 4. The conditions for the appearance of the solubility minimum are discussed in the Preface.

      The tentative solubility values for this system in weight percent and mole fraction are given in Table 14, as smoothed values at 5 K intervals.
