The solubilities of hydrocarbons in liquid oxygen and the phase behavior of hydrocarbon-oxygen systems have substantial theoretical and practical interest. The data presented in this paper indicate progress in predicting solubilities of materials in liquid oxygen and shed some further light upon the non-ideal thermodynamic behavior of the liquid phase. The safety aspect of liquid oxygen handling, a subject of much interest in missile propulsion as well as in the industrial use of liquid oxygen, may also be viewed more objectively.
