In the first section the relation between solubility, pH and dissociation constant is applied to the determination of the dissociation constant of p-chloro-, p-bromo-aniline and benzidine by measuring the solubilities at various pHs. With p-chloro- and p-bromo-aniline the value found agreed well with that obtained by potentio-metric titration of a solution of the substance, dissolved in standard hydrochloric acid, with caustic soda using a glass electrode. With benzidine the potentiometric titration was carried out successfully but difficulties were encountered in the solubility method. The second and main section of the work is concerned with measuring the dissociation constant of benzoic acid in mixed solvents, viz. dioxan-water mixtures, by three independent methods.
