Glass Ball as Bullet Solubility System: Dichloromethane with Water

   (1) Water; H2O; [7732-18-5]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail
   (2) Dichloromethane; CH2Cl2; [75-09-2]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail

Original Measurements:
   Niini, A., Suomen Kemistilehti A 1938, 11, 19-20.

   Temperature = 293 K

   The changes resulting from the addition of dichloromethane to water were determined by the measurement of both the density and refractive index of the saturated solutions. A conventional refractometer and a dilatometer were used for the measurements.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Kahlbaum, dried over P2O5 and redistilled before use.
   (2) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ± 12 %.
   Temperature: ± 0.5 K (compiler).
