   A bottle containing a mixture of 50 ml tetrachloromethane and 6 ml water was submerged into a water thermostat bath for two days. The concentration of water in the organic phase was determined by a conventional Karl Fischer deadstop backtitration. The determination was  carried out in triplicate. A detailed description of the complete procedure is given in a Ph. D. thesis (ref. 1).

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Distilled and deionized.
   (2) Fisher - C199, washed with H2SO4 and K2CO3 solutions and finally with water. Dried over silica gel and fractionally distilled. Purity was better than 99.8 %.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ± 0.2 c1 std. dev.
   Temperature: ± 0.1 K.
