   1  Gas-liquid system analysis parameter, from calibration measurements.

   A 5 μL tetrachloromethane sample was injected into a 2.3 liter equilibration cell containing distilled water. After the cell was shaken vigorously for about 5 minutes, the homogeneity of the liquid sample was maintained with a magnetic stirrer. Compressed air was  passed through the cell and the gas flow was measured with a soap film flowmeter. The tetrachloromethane content was extracted and analyzed using a dual flame ionization detector gas chromatograph.
