   An oil centrifuge bottle (so-called) which permitted an accurate reading of both the total volume and the small volume of upper or lower layer was used for the measurements. The necks of the solubility bottles were graduated to 0.05 cm3 over a  5 cm3 volume range. These bottles held approximately 50 cm3. Following the Hill method, weighted amounts of the two liquids were introduced into the bottles and shaken until equilibrium was reached.
