In this study, the effect of methane-sugar interaction on the solubility of methane in an aqueous solution at ambient pressure was investigated. Various sugars, such as fructose, glucose, sucrose, maltose, and raffinose, were used, and depending on the type and concentration of sugar, the methane solubility increased from 21.72 mg/L (in pure water) to 24.86 mg/L. Sugars with a low hydrogen-bonding number between the water and sugar molecules exhibited a large enhancement in methane solubility. The solute partitioning model and molecular dynamics simulations were employed to verify the results obtained for the experimental solubility of methane in aqueous sugar solutions.
