Solubilities of "vital" wheat gluten in dilute solutions of sodium hydroxide, acetic acid, sodium carbonate, ethanol, and monoethanolamine at 55°C were determined. Solubilities at 30°C in dilute solutions of sodium hydroxide, acetic acid, monoethanolamine, and sodium borate were also determined. Sodium hydroxide, monoethanolamine, and acetic acid solutions were the best solvents.
