This test method covers procedures for measurement of the solubility of organic compounds in water. Three procedures are described which will work over a variety of solubility ranges. These procedures are not appropriate for compounds that react with water or air at ambient conditions.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E47 on Biological Effects and Environmental Fate, this test method was withdrawn in March 2013. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.
1.1 This test method covers procedures for measurement of the solubility of organic compounds in water. Three procedures are described which will work over a variety of solubility ranges. These procedures are not appropriate for compounds that react with water or air at ambient conditions.
1.2 The procedure chosen will depend on the estimated solubility of the compound. This may be obtained from literature values (see Refs 1, 2, 3) by correlation with other parameters (4) or by analogy with the solubility of similar compounds.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
