   The saturation between trichloromethane and water took place in a water bath. The composition of both the organic and water phases were determined from their density and refractive index. The constant density and refractive index calibration curves were established by using  several synthetic mixtures.

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

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
