Ostwald solubility coefficients of some industrially important substances.
  1. R J Sherwood


    Solubility coefficients in blood for benzene, toluene, and xylene were determined as 6.5, 16, and 42 respectively. In lard and olive oil, which were taken to represent human fat, corresponding values were about 450, 1300, and 3900. The coefficient for vinyl chloride in lard and olive oil was 20; the value in blood was too low to be determined by the technique used. Trichloroethylene, used as a marker, was found to have a coefficient in lard of 660, and in olive oil of 710, rather lower values than have been accepted for fat.
