   Equilibrium was established between the water and the 1,3-dichlorobenzene in a sealed flask (1) with the aid of a magnetic stirrer during 48 hours under isothermal conditions. After the sample was filtered through a glass-wool plug, the 1,3-dichlorobenzene was extracted with 2,2, 4-trimethylpentene. Sample optical densities were determined spectrophotometrically (2). Five parallel determinations were done. The reported work was based upon a Ph.D. dissertation (3).

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Commercial reagent of analytical grade distilled through a column resulting in a more than 99% pure sample.
   (2) Distilled, deionized, and degassed.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ±1.0%.
   Temperature: ±0.05 K.
