The experimental results reported in this paper are the first in a wider research program aiming to test, in a laboratory, the behavior of selected hydrophobic compounds in an aqueous system. The generator column method was used to determine the solubility in water of biphenyl, 1,2-dichlorobenzene (1,2-DCBz), and hexachlorobenzene (HxCBz) at 25 °C. The solubilities of 1,2-DCBz and HxCBz were measured at temperatures ranging from 15 to 55 °C, and the enthalpies of solutions were derived from van't Hoff plots. The effects of three electrolytes on the solubility of HxCBz were determined at 25 °C, and their newly obtained Setschenow constants are reported.
