Solubilities of ethylene, ethane, and carbon dioxide in mixed solvents consisting of methanol, acetone, and water

  • S. Zeck

The amount of gas absorbed in a liquid solvent or solvent mixture is measured with a high-precision gas burette. Solubility coefficients (Henry and Ostwald coefficients) of C2H4 and C2H6 are determined at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure (1) in the pure solvents C3H6O, CH3OH, and H2O; (2) in the three binary mixtures of the solvents as a function of the composition of the solvent mixture; and (3) in several ternary mixtures of arbitrary composition. The experimental data are presented in diagrams and tables.

Key words
