   A mixture of water and tetrachloromethane was agitated overnight and left at equilibrium for 24 hours. Three samples were withdrawn from each phase with a syringe and analyzed by gas chromatography. The gas chromatograph (C. Erba ATc/t) was equipped with  a Shimadzu Chromatopac E-1A integrator. A stainless column packed with 100-120 mesh Chromosorb W DMCD coated with heptadecane nitrile was used for analysis.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Fluka reagent, purified by distillation before use.
   (2) Distilled (compiler).

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
   Temperature: ± 0.1 K.
