Solubility of cholesterol is determined in different solvents at 298.15 K. From the experimental solubility data, solubility parameters are evaluated using Hansen’s three dimensional concepts. Further, solubility parameters of cholesterol are also estimated using different models such as Hoy, Bowden, Van Krevelen, Fedorsetc for which only the chemical structure of cholesterol and a convenient list of increments are used. It is observed that there is good agreement between solubility parameter values for some models.
