   An excess of tetrachloromethane was added to a stainless steel tube containing water and then the tube was sealed. It was allowed to equilibrate during shaking for a week at 25oC. After centrifugation the concentration was obtained from a measu rement of radioactivity through liquid scintillation counting. The solubility procedure was carried out at least twice for each sample and the analysis was done in duplicate.
