   Dichloromethane was shaken with water for about 12 hours in a paraffin thermostat bath. The water content of the organic phase was determined using the Karl Fischer titration method. All measurements were carried out in duplicate and the average of the two  measurements was reported. A full description of the method is given in a thesis (ref. 1).
