Over the years, researchers have reported solubility data in the chemical, pharmaceutical, engineering, and environmental literature for several thousand organic compounds. Until the first publication of the Handbook of Aqueous Solubility Data, this information had been scattered throughout numerous sources. Now newly revised, the second edition of this landmark volume continues the tradition of providing an extensive compilation of published aqueous solubility data for a wide variety of organic nonelectrolytes and unionized weak electrolytes.
Adds data on 500 more organic compounds
This latest edition adds 2000 new solubility values, bringing the total count to over 18,000 data points. Almost 500 organic compounds have been added, increasing the total number to 4661. This volume includes data for pharmaceuticals, pollutants, nutrients, herbicides, and pesticides as well as agricultural, industrial, and energy-related compounds.
The same convenient format
Each compound is identified by a sequential number along with molecular formula, compound name, synonyms, molecular weight, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number, melting point, and boiling point if available. Each entry has a five-point evaluation score for the quality of the reporting of the data, along with the full citation, and comments from the authors when necessary. The user-friendly format gives a clear depiction of each piece of solubility data with enough information to estimate its validity.
The Handbook of Aqueous Solubility Data gives scientists in a broad range of fields a portable, accessible resource for solubility data of numerous compounds and a single system for the evaluation of the data supplied.

Dr. Samuel Yalkowsky is professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Arizona. He is currently involved in basic research on the relationships between chemical structure and physical phenomena such as solubility, partitioning, and melting. He has also made progress in the development of the state of the art algorithm for the estimation of the melting points, aqueous solubility and other physicochemical properties of organic compounds.
Dr. Yan He earned her B.S. in biology from Wuhan University in 1992, her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in pharmaceutical sciences from the University of Arizona in 1999 and 2005. She is a senior research investigator in the pharmaceutical sciences department at Sanofi-Aventis. Her research interests include performing "druggability" assessment, providing formulation for preclinical studies, and preparing preformulation package for preclinical drug candidates. She also conducted basic research on the relationships between chemical structure and physical properties of organic compounds.
Dr. Parijat Jain received his Ph.D. from University of Arizona in 2008. Currently, he is a formulation scientist in the Pharmaceutical Development Unit at Novartis Pharmaceutical Corporation in New Jersey.
