Abstract

Dichlormethane, or methylene chloride, is a chlorinated hydrocarbon having the following characteristics (1) : formula, CH2Cl2 ; molecular weight, 84.94; boiling point (at one atmosphere), 39.8°C; latent heat of vaporization 78.7 calories per gram; and specific gravity at 25°C/25°C, 1.3256. It is an excellent solvent for soybean oil. Since it was believed that it had possibilities as a solvent for the industrial extraction of soybean oil, studies were initiated to determine its suitability for this purpose. Preliminary to actual pilot plant studies certain necessary fundamental data were determined. Some of these data relating to specific gravities and boiling points of various soybean oil-dichlormethane mixtures are presented in this paper.
