Home  Solvent Properties Selection based on Boiling Point and Solubility Parameter
  This program permits solvent selection based on boiling point and on the solubility parameter. Hansen solubility parameter are used.
  To select a solvent from the database select first the desired boiling point. The program selects a range of solvents with increasing boiling points. The lowest boiling point displayed is the boiling point closest to your selection. The selection can be further narrowed in a second step by selection of an lower and upper solubility parameter. For section using SI units ( MPa1/2)
