   An excess of trichloromethane in 500 g water was shaken for 12 hours in a thermostat bath. Samples were then withdrawn and read against water in the interferometer made by Zeiss (ref. 1).A detailed description of the complete procedure is given in a Ph. D.  thesis (ref.2).

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Eastman Kodak Co., shaken with H2SO4, Hg, and distilled water and fractionated before use.
   (2) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ± 1.0 %.
   Temperature: ± 0.02 K.
