   (1) 2,2’-Oxybispropane (dipropyl ether); C6H14O; [108-20-3]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail
   (2) Acetonitrile; C2H3N; [75-05-8]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail

Original Measurements:
   Cornish, R.E.; Archibald, R.C.; Murphy, E.A.; Evans, H.M., Ind. Eng. Chem. 26, 397 (1934).

   Temperature = 233 K

Prepared By:
   Valerii P. Sazonov

Experimental Remarks:

   The upper critical solution temperature (UCST) was reported as < –40 °C (< 233 K, compiler).

Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
   The synthetic method was used. Determinations were made in test tubes, which were heated and allowed to cool slowly in air. Thermometers were roughly calibrated.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Prepared from sodium cyanide and dimethyl sulfate; the crude product was distilled off and successively washed with solid sodium hydroxide and P2O5; carefully fractionated in a 6.09 m column; d(20 °C,4 °C)=0.782 15.
   (2) Source not specified; purified by fractionating in a 6.09 m column.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not reported.
   Temperature: Not reported.
