   The solubility determination was carried out in small test tubes (e. g. 100x12 mm) to permit vigorous shaking of the tetrachloromethane and water mixtures. During the experiments 0.20 ml tetrachloromethane was added to 3.0 ml of water and agitated. The co ncentration of tetrachloromethane in water was analyzed by passing the sample through a chromatographic column.
