On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the alcohol data set which pertains to Alcohol Solubility in Water Data. The alcohol data set is found in the robustbase R package. You can load the alcohol data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("alcohol"). This will load the data into a variable called alcohol. If R says the alcohol data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("robustbase") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the alcohol R data set. The size of this file is about 1,482,997 bytes.
Alcohol Solubility in Water Data
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.
