Abstract
A method is described for directly measuring liquid volatility at ambient temperatures without the need to measure vapour pressure or use a predictive vapour pressure-temperature relationship. The method is based on the drying of a wetted solid under controlled conditions and relating volatility to the rate of drying. The rate of drying is determined by monitoring changes in vapour concentration over time using an infrared gas analyzer.
