   An excess of 1,3-bis(trifluoromethy1) benzene was stirred with 100 ml water in a closed flask in a thermally regulated bath (±0.1°C) for 30 min. After phase separation and standing for several hours, two samples of known amounts were removed from the aqueous phase and extracted with hexane. The absorbances of the extracted samples were measured (265 nm) with a Pye Unicam SP 30 spectrophotometer. Hexane solutions of the solute is known concentrations were used to establish the extinction coefficient (246 dm3mol-1cm-1). The procedure was repeated to give a total of four concentration measurements.
