Description: This article discusses correlation of solute transfer into toluene and ethylbenzene from water and from the gas phase based on the Abraham model. Experimental data have been compiled from the published literature on the partition coefficients of solutes and vapors into ethylbenzene and toluene at 298 K. The logarithms of the water-to-ethylbenzene and water-to-toluene partition coefficients, log P, and gas-to-ehtylbenzene and gas-to-toluene partition coefficients, log K, were correlated with the Abraham solvation parameter model. The derived mathematical expressions described the observed log P and log K data for the two aromatic hydrocarbon solvents to within average deviations of 0.13 log units or less.
