Solubility of Water in Benzene Derivatives

Solubility and Henry’s Law constants for water in benzene and its derivatives

Carl L. Yaws and Manish Rahate, Lamar University

The solubility of water in the hydrocarbons that comprise crude oil is an increasingly important issue in view of processing, safety and environmental considerations surrounding product quality and equipment sustainability. Water in the reacting hydrocarbon species may result in the formation of undesirable by-products. To illustrate the importance of water solubility in hydrocarbons, we offer the results of solubility studies involving water in benzene derivatives. The results for both solubility and Henry’s Law constant for water are provided in an easy‑to‑use tabular format for a wide variety of benzene derivatives contained in crude oil....
