The Solvent Solver
A Calculator for Working with Teas Fractional Solubility Parameters
The Solvent Solver is a tool created for use by staff at the National Archives in conservation applications, and it is written for users with an existing knowledge of chemistry, solvents and related subject matter.
Please be Aware
- There is a risk of serious physical injury when mixing chemicals.
- Only qualified persons should use the Solvent Solver.
- The National Archives is not responsible for any injuries that may be incurred as a result
of using the Solvent Solver program.
The Solvent Solver uses calculations based on the Teas fractional solubility parameter system in conservation applications. The program also provides additional information that may be helpful in evaluating some aspects of the health risks associated with different solvents and solvent mixtures.
- The program does not consider incompatibility of solvents, reaction
of solvents with objects, flammability of solvents, and other important safety
presented within the application.
