Key result
Remarks on result:
other: tert-butylbenzene (EC: 202-632-4) is insoluble in water.
Remarks:
tert-butylbenzene (EC: 202-632-4) is insoluble in water.
Details on results:
- Result of preliminary test
0.10 g sample was weighted and 100 mL water was added. Sample was not dissolved and phase separation occurred.

- Result of test
1) The result of preliminary test shows that the solubility of sample is smaller than 1 g/L. Three vessels were prepared and 0.5 g sample was weighed into each vessel, and 50mL water was added into each vessel. The vessels were equilibrated for 1d,2d and 3d respectively, with occasional shaking, after which the aqueous phase was analyzed using GC, and the pH values were test to be 4.59, 4.22 and 4.38. No tert-Butylbenzene was detected in any aqueous solutions. The detection limit is 5.8×10-4g/L.
2) The result is that the sample is insoluble in water.
Conclusions:
tert-butylbenzene (EC: 202-632-4) is insoluble in water.
