Abstract:

The solubility of 3,4-dinitrotoluene 3,4-DNT in natural filtered seawater with ionic strength 0.1662, 0.3352, 0.5071, and 0.6820 molL and pure water was measured at temperatures ranging between 277 and 314 K. The solubility in seawater was lower than that in pure water. The average salting-out coefficient for 3,4-DNT was 0.13 Lmol, which is consistent with measurements for other isomers of dinitrotoluene. The salting-out coefficient did not show any significant variation with temperature over the range examined.
