An element of obvious importance, mercury is also hazardous in the environment and corrosive to many materials. A knowledge of its solubility is inestimable in addressing problems concerning the element's concentration in our surroundings. This volume presents all relevant data published on the solubility of mercury up to June 1986. By combining these data with the mercury equilibrium vapour pressure, Henry's constant and Ostwald coefficients can be calculated.
