The solubilities of 15 organic solvents (benzene, fluorobenzene, ethylbenzene, chlorobenzene, toluene, p-xylene, vinyl acetate, styrene, acrylonitrile, carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, n-nonane, and n-decane) in poly(vinyl acetate) left bracket 100 - 200 degree C right bracket , poly(vinyl chloride) left bracket 115 - 150 degree C right bracket and vinyl chloride(90%)-vinyl acetate(10%) copolymer left bracket 115 - 150 degree C right bracket were measured at atmospheric pressure by using a gas chromatographic technique. For these systems, Henry's constants are reported on a mass fraction basis. Bonner's equation was applied at infinite dilution and the binary interaction parameters of each homopolymer were determined from the experimental results. Furthermore, it was found that the interaction parameters for copolymer could be represented by the average segment fraction of each homopolymer parameter.
