   Between 25 and 100 ml 1, 2, 4-trichlorobenzene and 1 to 2 ml D2O were placed in a flask and shaken for about 90 min. The thermostat water bath temperature was maintained within ± 0.05°C. Then, a sample was removed and the amount of D2O dissolved was determined by a modified Karl Fischer titration (1). The original report was unavailable; however, the method and the results were described in sufficient detail in (1). The solubility of H2O in 1, 2, 4-trichlorobenzene was also determined and found to be 0.01123 mol(1)/kg. The average devitation for two experiments was ±0.00006 mol(1)/kg.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Carefully purified and dried before use. Source and method not given.
   (2) Source not specified.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: av. dev. ±2.1 x 10-5 mol D2O/100 g solution.
   Temperature: ± 0.05 K.
