Experimental Remarks:

   The solubility of 2,4-dimethylpentane in water at 25°C was reported to be 3.62 mg (1)/ kg sln (0.00362 g(1)/100 g sln).
The corresponding mole fraction, x1, calculated by the compiler, is 6.5 x 10-7.

Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
   20-50 mL of 91) was added to 920 and vigorously shaken or stirred several days with a magnetic stirrer. A 0.05 mL or 0.10 mL water was directly injected into the gas chromatograph fitted with a suitable fractionator to absorb water. A hydrogen-flame ionization detector was used.
