   A known volume of water was mixed with tetrachloromethane in Erlenmeyer flasks. The flasks, with their contents magnetically stirred, were immersed in a water bath. Samples were removed for analyses at regular intervals. All samples were analyzed by gas- iquid chromatography using an electron capture detector. The reported solubility is the average of five consecutive samples with less than 5% variation.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Source not given. Analytical standard grade, purity is greater than 95 %.
   (2) Distilled and run through a resin column.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
   Temperature: ± 0.5 K.
