The solubilities of 2,5- and 2,6-xylenols in supercritical carbon dioxide were measured by using a flow-type apparatus at 308.15 K up to 27 MPa. The appearance of a liquid phase was seen for the CO2+ 2,6-xylenol system though the equilibrium temperature was lower than the melting point of 2,6-xylenol. The solubilities of 2,5-xylenol were correlated by a three-constant cubic equation of state with the two characteristic parameters.
