Glass Ball as Bullet Solubility System: Tetrachloromethane (carbon tetrachloride) with Water

   (1) Water; H2O; [7732-18-5]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail
   (2) Tetrachloromethane (carbon tetrachloride); CCl4; [56-23-5]  NIST Chemistry WebBook for detail

Original Measurements:
   Hunter-Smith, R.J.; Balls, P.W.; Liss, P.S., Tellus 35B, 170 (1983).

   Temperature = 278 K - 306 K

Prepared By:
   A. L. Horvath

Experimental Remarks:

   The Henry's law constant (H) was derived from the best-fit lines of van't Hoff plots:

    loge H = - 2918/T(K) + 9.77

   The multiple equilibration technique was used to measure the Henry's law constant as described by McAuliffe (ref. 1). A known volume of water in a syringe was shaken with a known volume of pure tetrachloromethane. After equilibration of the sample, the headspace  was separated and analyzed for the compound of interest. A gas chromatograph fitted with an electron capture detector was used for the analysis.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ± 5.5 % std. dev.
   Temperature: ± 0.2 K.
