   An aqueous solution with an excess amount of tetrachloromethane was stirred for one day before being introduced into a 1 liter glass vessel through a sintered glass disk. The exit gas flow rate was measured by a soap bubble flow meter. The concentration of  tetrachloromethane in water was determined by gas chromatography. The GC was equipped with both a dual flame ionization detector and an electron capture detector.
