   Weighted mixtures of water and trichloromethane were shaken in sealed tubes in a water bath until the equilibrium had been established. After separation in two layers, a sample of the organic phase was taken and the water content of the mixture was determined by  titration with a solution of cobalt chloride in anhydrous acetone. For further details, see (ref. 1).

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Distilled.
   (2) Commercial grade, washed with H2SO4 and K2CO3 solutions, followed by distillation before use.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
   Temperature: ± 0.05 K (compiler).
