Title: Solubility data related to industrial processes. Solubility of higher alkynes in liquids

Series: Solubility Data Series; editor-in-chief: Mark Salomon

Task Group
Peter G.T. Fogg

Member: Mark Salomon

This project will compile and evaluate all available solubility data for higher alkynes with liquids. It will complement volume 76 of the Solubility Data Series entitled Solubility of Ethyne in Liquids, edited by Peter G.T. Fogg.

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).

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 fit within the priority focus area, Solubility Related to Industrial Processes. Alkyne solubilities are important to many industrial processes, primarily as data for purification of high energy fuels and for use of alkynes in synthesis of more complex organic compounds . These systems were not covered yet in Solubility Data Series.
