   The saturation of dichloromethane and water mixtures occurred in a flask fitted with a thermostat jacket and a powerful stirrer. After a stirring time of 10 - 20 minutes, samples were withdrawn from both the organic and aqueous layers and the compositions were determi ned from their refractivity indices.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Source not given. Purified by repeated distillation; density = 1.3252 g/cm3 and refractive index = 1.4233 at 20 oC.
   (2) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
   Temperature: ± 0.1 K.
