   Constant temperature bath, thermometer, and a precision balance.
Excess solute and solvent placed in closed glass container and allowed to equilibrate for several hours at constant temperature. Aliquots of saturated solutions were transferred into tared containers and weighed. Solubilities calculated from weight of solid residue that remained after solvent had evaporated.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Purity not specified, coal tar extract, was recrystallized several times from ethanol to give a melting point temperature of 110.0-110.3 ºC.
   (2) Commercial sample, purity and source not given, was dehydrated and distilled shortly before use.

Estimated Errors:

   Temperature: T/K: precision ± 0.05. x1: ± 3 % (relative error; compiler).
