Solubility of Haloganated Aromatic Hydrocarbons


. . . some of these or their related compounds, of both synthetic and natural origin, can seriously interfere with reproductive function.


Halogenated derivatives of aromatic and polyaromatic hydrocarbons have been widely used as heat transfer fluids, organic diluents, plasticizers, fire retardants, pesticides, waxes, and more. However, recently it has been pointed out that some of these or their related compounds, of both synthetic and natural origin, can seriously interfere with reproductive function. From the pharmaceutical and environmental viewpoints, the solubilities of these substances are useful to elucidate the movement and persistence in the environment and to estimate the hazard or risk associated with them. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the solubilities of, for example, chlorinated benzenes, biphenyl, and dioxins in various media including single, binary, and/or multi-component solvents, micellar solutions, and polymer solutions.
