   Tetrachloromethane vapor was equilibrated in an airtight vial with water and the overlying air. When equilibrium was reached, a portion of the equilibrated air in the vessel was withdrawn using an air-tight syringe and this sample was injected into a gas  chromatograph for analysis. The chromatogram peak height was used to calculate the distribution coefficient.
