Title: Solubilities of families of heterocyclic polynuclear aromatics in organic solvents and their mixtures

Abstract

The solubilities of anthracene, acridine, xanthene, thioxanthene, carbazole, dibenzofuran, and dibenzothiophene have been experimentally determined in benzene, cyclohexane, thiophene, and pyridine from ambient temperature to approximately 440 K. The results have been correlated using the classical equation for solid-liquid solubility to obtain the experimental activity coefficient of the solute in the solvent. These experimental activity coefficients have been regressed, using three common solution models, to find the binary interaction parameters needed in those models. The solubilities of biphenyl, dibenzofuran, and dibenzothiophene have been experimentally determined in five binary mixtures of the solvents. The experimental activity coefficients have been found and compared to the values predicted by the four solution models, using the binary interaction parameters obtained from the solubilities in the pure solvents and solvent-solvent binary interaction parameters obtained from literature vapor-liquid equilibria data. The effect of substituting various heteroatoms into the ring structure has been discussed.
