   Trichloromethane was shaken with water for about 12 hours in a paraffin thermostat bath. The water content of the organic phase was determined by the Karl Fischer titration method. All measurements were carried out in duplicates. The result is the average  of two determinations.A full description of the method used is given in a thesis (ref. 1).

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Distilled.
   (2) Source and purity not given.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
   Temperature: ± 0.5 K (compiler).
