The solubilities of N2, O2, CO, CO2, CH4, and CF4 in methylcyclohexane and toluene have been determined at 1 atm pressure in the range 283 to 313 K. The solubility, Gibbs energy, enthalpy, and entropy of solution for 1 atm partial pressure of gas and 298.15 K have been calculated from the experimental results. These values have been compared with the results obtained through application of the scaled particle theory to gas solubilities. Agreement is generally good. This theory is also used to discuss the different behavior of alicyclic and aromatic solvents with respect to gas solubility.
