In the physical sciences, a partition coefficient is the ratio of concentrations of a compound in a mixture of two immiscible phases at equilibrium. These coefficients are a measure of the difference in solubility of the compound in these two phases.
The phrase "partition coefficient" is now considered obsolete and "partition constant", "partition ratio", or "distribution ratio" are all more appropriate terms that should be used.
