Solubility of water in hydrocarbons

Hibbard, R. R., Schalla, R. L.

An equation is presented which may be used to estimate the solubility of water in any nonolefinic hydrocarbon or hydrocarbon blend at any temperature. Only the temperature and the hydrogen-to-carbon ratio of the hydrocarbon need be known to calculate solubilities which are believed to be sufficiently accurate for most engineering purposes.
