    The solubility of artemisinin in pure methanol, ethyl acetate, acetone, acetonitrile, cyclohexane, toluene, and chloroform was measured by a synthetic method over the temperature range from (283.15 to 323.15) K at atmospheric pressure. The results show that the solubility of artemisinin increases with increasing temperature in all seven solvents. The experimental data were correlated using the modified Apelblat model, and the agreement with the experimental data was very good.
