   A mixture of 10 to 20 ml tetrachloromethane in 500 ml of an aqueous solution of KCl was placed in a water thermostat bath. The sample container was placed on a shaker and agitated until no more liquid droplets remained undissolved. One or more samples were  syphoned out and the concentration of tetrachloromethane was determined using a Zeiss water interferometer.

Source and Purity of Materials:
