Additional information

The study by McAuliffe (1966) predates the implementation of GLP and standard guidelines. The method is described in detail and is considered appropriate for determining the solubility of a gaseous substance. The supporting study, Merck Handbook (O'Neil 2006) is a peer reviewed handbook and reports a value of 11 vol % at 25 ˚C and states the substance is moderately soluble.
