The solubility of cholesterol in methanol, ethanol, propanol and butanol was measured by a gravimetrical method from (293.15 to 318.15) K under atmospheric pressure and the solubility data were correlated against temperature. It is observed that solubility increases linearly with increase in temperature. Solubility is higher in butanol and a minimum in methanol.
