   An apparatus containing the mixture of dichloromethane and water was placed in a thermostat bath. The stirring of the mixture was accomplished by using a glass rod rotated by a horseshoe magnet for about 48 hours. The concentration of water in the organic phase was  determined by the Karl Fischer titration method.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Distilled.
   (2) Source not given. Analytical grade, degassed before use.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ± 2 %.
   Temperature: ± 0.1 K.
