Solubility prediction in octanol: a technical note.

Kia Sepassi, Samuel H. Yalkowsky

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The purpose of this work was to derive an equation for the rapid estimation of octanol solubilities of organic compounds. Solubilities ranging over 4 orders of magnitude were predicted with an average absolute error of 0.39 logarithmic units using melting point alone. The greatest error in prediction occurred for strongly bonded compounds.
