   Iodomethane was added gradually to 100 cm3 water from a pipette under continuous stirring and shaking in an oil bath. The appearance of the first cloud (turbidity) indicated the saturation of the solution. The solubility was calculated from the  volume of iodomethane added to a known quantity of water.
