# Hansen solubility parameters

The Hansen Solubility Parameters are a tool for predicting if a material will dissolve in given solvent or solvent mixture. Every solvent and solute has three parameters:
 δd the dispersion contribution to δ δp the polar contribution to δ δh the hydrogen bonding contribution to δ
where δ is the Hildebrand solubility parameter.
The relation δ2d2p2h2 holds. Thus for non-polar solvents δph=0 and δd=δ.
Solutes do also have δdp and δh parameters and an additional parameter, the interaction radius, R0. To determine the solubility of a compound the distance Ra is calculated.
 Ra2= 4×Δδd2+ Δδp2+ Δδh2 where Δδd2= (δsolute,d-δsolvent,d)2 Δδp2= (δsolute,p-δsolvent,p)2 Δδh2= (δsolute,h-δsolvent,h)2
A solute dissolves in a solvent mixture if R0<Ra.
