Abstract

It is the purpose of this work to study the solubility of naphthalene, the simplest polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon as a function of the salt content and the temperature, in ranges that span those likely to be found in natural ecosystems. Another goal is to set up a high-pressure generator, to study the effect of pressure on the solubility of hydrocarbons.
