One question that you could ask yourself is whether or not a given liquid is miscible in a solvent that might be used in a dilution.  I think a great deal depends on you intended use.  Can you provide some specifics?

Thank you for taking your time to reply.  The usage is to create a particular pheromone.

It is a forum rule that you need to show some effort on your part. What do you know about these materials' individual solubility?

This is what I know so far and like a confirmation:

1. Ammonia 7664-41-7 + Water
2. Lactic acid 79-33-4 + Water
3. Tetradecanoic acid 544-63-8 + Ethanol
4. 3-Methyl-1-butanol   123-51-3 + Water
5. 1-Butylamine   109-73-9 + Paraffin oil
6. 2-Butanone   78-93-3 + Water
7. Ammonium Bicarbonate   1066-33-7 + Water or Paraffin oil
8. Hexanoic acid 142-62-1 + Ethanol

End-Product: A Pheromone that can last four weeks or more.
