Description of key information

The solubility of benzene in water is circa 1.88g/L at 23.5˚C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
1.88 g/L
at the temperature of:
23.5 °C

Additional information

The Merck Index is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.

The supporting study (CRC 2008) is also a peer reviewed handbook and supports the value reported in the key study, stating the water solubility of benzene as 1.78 g/L at 25°C.
