   The Alexejev's synthetic method of solubility determination was used (ref. 1). A fixed weight of trichloromethane and water was sealed in a tube and subjected to gradually increasing temperature with constant agitation. The appearance of opalescence or clouding  was the indication of the saturation temperature. The temperature was then allowed to fall and, while the tube was constantly agitated, the temperature of the first appearance of opalescence was recorded. The observation was repeated several times.
