Critical Evaluation:

   Solubilities in the system comprising nitromethane and 1,2-ethanediol-d2 have been reported in two publications. Tsvetkov and Rabinovich1 determined the upper critical solution temperature by the synthetic method. Salvi and Van Hook2 reported extensive measurements of the mutual solubility of components (1) and (2) between 313 and 315 K and 0.1 - 50 MPa also by the synthetic method.

The upper critical solution temperature has been reported as 320.7 K (Ref. 1) and 315.04 K2. The latter result is preferred, and hence is classified as tentative, because of the higher quality, precision and number of measurements reported by Salvi and Van Hook.2

The corresponding critical solution composition has been reported as xc1 = 0.642 (100 w1 = 63.1)2, which can also be regarded as tentative.

The interested user is referred to the relevant data sheet2 for values of the mutual solubilities of (1) and (2).
