   A 5 ml tetrachloromethane sample containing a labeled complex, cobalt(III) pyrrolidinecarbodithioate, was placed together with 1000 ml water into a separation funnel. After rigorous shaking of the funnel for 5 minutes the mixture was left for 30 minutes before separation  of the two phases. Samples were withdrawn for activity measurement using a NaI (Tl) scintillation detector. Several factors were adjusted to obtain accurate measurements.
