   Binary mixtures containing 50 ml tetrachloromethane were isopiestically equilibrated with water in an equilibration vessel which was submerged in a waterbath. The equilibrium concentration of water in the binary mixtures was then determined by a Karl Fischer titration method.  The apparatus included a Zeromatic II potentiometer with the dead-stop end-point indication. The determinations were made at least in duplicate.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Distilled and deionized.
   (2) Fisher Scientific Co., spectroanalyzed grade, further purified by extraction with H2SO4, dried and redistilled, 00.78 % pure.

Estimated Errors:
