   The determination of the solubility was carried out in a 125 cm3 Erlenmeyer flask, containing about 15 cm3 of water.1 The 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane was added to a sample from a buret and the flask was  agitated until the solution becomes turbid. The amounts were converted to appropriate units using known densities of the pure components from volume to weight measurements.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) du Pont de Nemours & Company, purified to show a distillation range of 1 to 2 °C.
   (2) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
   Temperature: ± 0.5 K.
