According to the available literature the water solubilty of formaldehyde is ca 550 g/L at 20 °C
individual sources were identified containing information on the water
solubility of formaldehyde.
According to the Merck Index (2013)
formaldehyde is soluble up to 55 % at 20 °C.
According to the Publication of
Pickrell (1983), the RömppChemie database (2015) and the online Knovel
data-base (2012), the solubility of formaldehyde in water is 400 g/L at
According to the Ullmanns encyclopydia
(2012) formaldehyde can dissolve in water up to 95 v% at a temperature
of 120 °C. At room temperature, pure aqueous solutions contain
formaldehyde in the form of methylene glycol HOCH2OH [463-57-0] and its
According to the CRC (2010) handbook,
Hawley’s chemical dictionary (2012), and the Gestis (2015) online
database, formaldehyde is soluble or freely soluble in water.
According to the Kirk-Othmer (2015)
online encyclopedia, as well as the Verschueren (2001) handbook
formaldehyde is miscible at 25 °C.
Based on these data the water solubility
of formaldehyde is determined to be 550 g/L at 20 °C.
