   The direct injection technique was used for the investigation of the solubility of trichloromethane in water. Ostwald coefficients were determined by equilibration of trichloromethane with water in a capped syringe. After thoroughly mixing, a sample was withdrawn and  analyzed in a gas chromatograph equipped with a hydrogen flame detector. The concentration was proportional to the recorded peak height.
