A method of determining the solubility of a solute with a considerable rate of hydrolysis and small solubility in water was devised. The method consists of measurements of the hydrolysis rate below or at saturation solubility, the rate constants and order of reaction, and analysis of kinetic data. The solubility of benzyl chloride in water was found to be 33.1 mg/100 ml at 4.5°C, 49.3 at 20°C, and 55.5 at 30°C. Solubility of benzal chloride and benzotrichloride was calculated to be 25 mg/100 ml at 30°C and 5.3 at 5°C, respectively, by utilizing the kinetic data given in literature
