Notes:

Method/Apparatus/Procedure:
   The apparatus is all glass. It consists of a gas buret connected to a contacting vessel. The solvent is degassed by boiling under reduced pressure. Gas pressure or volume is adjusted using mercury displacement. Equilibration is achieved at atm pressure by hand shaking, and incrementally adding gas to the contacting chamber. Solubility measured by obtaining total uptake of gas by known volume of the solvent.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Ethene. Prepared by reaction of 1, 2-dibromoethane with zinc-copper.
   (2) Limonene.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: δ L/L ≥ -0.20
