Objective

Update of SDS Vol 37 & 38; editor-in-chief: Mark Salomon

This project will update and re-evaluate solubility data for all C-5 and higher hydrocarbons with water. These systems were previously treated in Volumes 37 and 38 of the Solubility Data Series, which were published in 1988 and quickly went out of print. The results of this work will be prepared in the standard format of the IUPAC-NIST Solubility Data Series for publication in the Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data and for inclusion in a web-accessible database being prepared by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Description

Under the direction of the Subcommittee on Solubility and Equilibrium Data (SSED) of the Analytical Chemistry Division, the IUPAC Solubility Data Project (SDP) compiles and critically evaluates data on chemical solubility and disseminates the resulting information to the widest possible range of users by traditional (printed on paper) and electronic (web-accessible database) means.

The systems to be covered by this project do not fit within the priority focus areas identified in the phantom proposal. However, they are of great interest both to environmental scientists concerned with the fate and effects of petroleum pollution and to industrial chemists dealing with petroleum and petrochemicals. Because of the importance of these systems they were treated early in the SDP. The resulting volumes (SDS 37 and 38) were published 15 years ago and are now both out of date and out of print.

This project will update the previous volumes by compiling new data from approximately 50 published sources and reevaluate all systems where this is appropriate.

Progress

In addition to the standard evaluation criteria used throughout the Solubility Data Series, a new method based on the evaluation of all experimental data for a given series of hydrocarbons and new models for Equation of State were used.

The work has been divided into 12 parts, all of which are in the hands of the Editor-in-Chief of the Solubility Data Project or have been submitted for publication in the Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data (JPCRD). Parts 1-5 correspond to systems from volume 37, parts 6-11 to systems from volume 38 and part 12 to systems of hydrocarbons in seawater.
