   An excess of tetrachloromethane was added to 10 cm3 distilled water in a 50 cm3 flask. The mixture was magnetically stirred in a constant temperature water bath. The mixture was analyzed by using radioactive techniques. The 14C acti vity of the water samples was measured in a liquid scintillation spectrometer by recording the number of counts per minute.
