I'm interested in studying the solubility of water molecules in toluene.

I already know that some water can dissolve in toluene. I've also done some calculations at DFT level using the C-PCM solvation model, but unfortunately, the DFT theory does not correctly describe all water's properties.

Is there somebody that has studied this phenomenon? I was able to find only toluene-in-water system.

    $\begingroup$ Mutual Solubility Measurements of Hydrocarbon–Water Systems Containing Benzene, Toluene, and 3-Methylpentane is available from ACS at J. Chem. Eng. Data 2008, 53, 1, 165–174 Publication Date:November 21, 2007 doi.org/10.1021/je700449z but apparently it will cost you. $\endgroup$ May 24 at 14:21
