   250 ml bottles were filled with distilled and deionized water and sealed. A measured volume of tetrachloromethane was injected into the bottles through each septum using a microliter syringe. Tetrachloromethane was in excess of the anticipated solubility  limit. The bottles were shaken for one hour with a wristaction shaker and allowed to equilibrate for about 3 weeks. Samples were then injected into a gas chromatograph equipped with a Carbopack column and a FID detector. The GC response was compared with calibrations plots.

Source and Purity of Materials:
