   Gas-liquid chromatography was used for the determination of the partition of trichloromethane with thin layers of water coated on Porasil D. Helium carrier gas was presaturated with water at the column temperature. The eluents were detected with an F & M flame ionization  dectector. The partition coefficient (KL) was calculated from the slope of the straight line plot of VN/AL versus VL/AL.
