   250 ml bottles were filled with distilled deionized water and sealed. Measured volumes of trichlorofluoromethane were injected into the bottles through each bottle septum using a microliter syringe. The solute was in excess of the anticipated solubility  limit. The bottles were shaken for 1 hour with a wrist-action shaker and allowed to equilibrate for about 3 weeks. Samples were then injected into a gas chromatograph equipped with a Carbopack column and a FID detector. The GC responses were compared with a  calibration plot to establish concentrations.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Probably a commercial reagent, at least 99 % purity, used as received.
   (2) Distilled deionized.
