The solubility of alcohols in water is important in understanding alcohol transport in living organisms. This dataset from (Romanelli et al., 2001) contains physicochemical characteristics of 44 aliphatic alcohols. The aim of the experiment was the prediction of the solubility on the basis of molecular descriptors.
A data frame with 44 observations on the following 7 numeric variables.
solvent accessible surface-bounded molecular volume.
Log(PC); PC = octanol-water partitions coefficient
ln(Solubility), the response.
