Solubility of Water in Benzenes As a Function of Temperature

The solubility of water in hydrocarbons is important for several reasons, including product quality. A new correlation is compared to experimental data

Carl L. Yaws, Preetam Rane and Vishal Nigam Lamar University

Results are presented here for solubility of water in benzenes as a function of temperature. A new correlation for water solubility is also presented that provides reliable solubility values down to very low concentrations (parts per million range). The correlation is based on the boiling point temperature of the benzenes. Correlation values and experimental data are in favorable agreement. The results are useable in engineering applications involving processing, safety, hazard, environmental and green issues....
