Title: Solubility of solutes in compressed gases: Dilute solution theory

Abstract

A dilute solution theory is developed for describing the thermodynamic behavior of a compressed gaseous dilute solution. The considerations follow generally accepted statistical treatments for describing dilute liquid solutions. The theory is self-consistent with the ideal gas law for dilute gases and with Henry's law for dilute liquid (or solid) solutions. Further, it provides a simple linear relationship which represents well the solubility behavior of a heavy solute (solid or liquid) in a gaseous solvent over relatively wide density regions of the solvent (i.e., 0 [le] [rho] [le] 2.0/V[sub c]).
