The authors have used a fast expansion chamber to measure the homogeneous nucleation rate of toluene as a function of temperature and supersaturation. The measured nucleation rate ranges from 102 to 105 drops/cm3 s over a temperature range of 215-267 K. The measurements are compared with the "classical" nucleation theory and with the RKC theory. The inclusion of the RKC replacement factor brings the data into good agreement with theory using physically realistic values of the surface tension and the sticking coefficient. An empirical curve fit to the data is presented as well as a full listing of the thermodynamic constants used for the calculations. © 1983 American Institute of Physics.
