Solubilities of phenol, p-chlorophenol, and 2, 4-dichlorophenol in supercritical carbon dioxide were measured at 36 °C over a range of pressures from 80 to 250 atm. The solubility of phenol In supercritical carbon dioxide was also measured at 60 °C over the same pressure range. The data represent the effects of pressure and temperature on solubility as well as solubility trends In an homologous series of compounds.
