In this report, the solubility of hydroquinone (1,4-dihydroxybenzene) was determined in dichloromethane, trichloromethane and carbon tetrachloride at 298 K by using cyclic voltammetry. By the proposed cosolvent calibration method a mixed solvent was used for the determination of solubility where acetonitrile was the co-solvent. The molar ratios of the two solvents were uniform during the whole procedure both in the calibration solutions and in solutions used for solubility determinations. The solubility of hydroquinone decreased by the decrease of solvent permittivity, which were in dichloromethane 5.683 mmol·L−1, in trichloromethane 2.785 mmol·L−1 and in carbon tetrachloride 0.321 mmol·L−1.
