  • 461 Accesses


From an investigation of the solubility of paraffin from Ozeksuat petroleum (m.p. 52°) in the acetone-toluene system, a region of phase-separation and immiscibility in the 3-component system paraffin-acetone-toluene has been found, similar to that discovered earlier for the 3-component system paraffin-acetone-benzene.
