dc.description.abstractTholins are complex organic materials produced via photolysis of methane and dinitrogen gases in Titan’s upper atmosphere. These long-chained hydrocarbons sediment to the moon surface and interact with liquid hydrocarbons via methane rain [1], [2] and methaneethane-nitrogen dominated lakes and seas [3]–[6]. However, preliminary studies have shown that tholins are only weakly soluble in non-polar solvents such as methane and ethane, and soluble in polar solvents [7]–[11]. We have decided to determine the solubility of Titan tholins in solutions of liquid hydrocarbons mixed with nitriles, such as acrylonitrile, acetonitrile, and hexane.en_US
