The results of determining the distribution coefficients of bis(2-chloroethyl) sulfide between some organic solvents and water at 25 °C are presented in this paper. Two original methods for determining the distribution coefficients were applied: the kinetic method and the method of hydrolysis blocking. Values of the obtained distribution coefficients are discussed from the aspect of the calculated solubility parameters. The denoted methods can also be applied in a similar fashion to determine the distribution coefficients of other substances of similar properties.
