Abstract

The solubility of butyl paraben (butyl 4-hydroxybenzoate) have been determined in methanol, ethanol, propanol, acetone, ethyl acetate, and acetonitrile in the temperature range of (10 to 50) °C by the gravimetric method. The order of the solubility of butyl paraben in the different solvents as mass fraction at 20 °C is: methanol > ethanol > acetone > propanol > ethyl acetate > acetonitrile. In terms of mole fraction solubility, the corresponding order is acetone > propanol > ethanol > ethyl acetate > methanol > acetonitrile, which shows that both nonpolar and polar groups of the paraben molecule influence the solubility in the different solvents.
