Abstract

The solubilities of N2, O2, Ar, CO, CO2, and c-C3H6 in benzene and isobutanol solutions of cholesterol, lecithin, and cephalin were determined at atmospheric pressure and 310.65 K. Solubilities were determined as a function of concentration and salting-out coefficients are presented. The results are discussed in terms of the usefulness of the solutions studied as model systems for cell membranes, and their relation to mechanisms of anaesthesia.
