If C – concentration of the solution (M), V – volume of the solution (ml), x – chemical amount of sebacoyl chloride (mmole) then:

C = x/V;
C = 0,19 M;
V = V (cyclohexane) + V(sebacoyl chloride)*= 21,6 + 239,14*x/1,12*1000;
0,19 = x/ (21,6 + 239,14*x/1,12*1000);
x = 4,28 mmole;
V (sebacoyl chloride) = 239,14*4,28/1,12*1000 = 0,91 (ml).
*We consider that the volume of final solution is equal to the sum of two mixing liquids (what in general case is not true).
