   An excess of 5-10 g 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane was equilibrated with 100 cm3 of distilled water for 24 hours in a bottle. The aqueous solution taken from the bottle was analyzed using a gas chromatograph equipped with a 63Ni  electron capture detector. The GLC column was packed with porous polymer Chromosorb 101. Further details on determination and evaluation of the procedure are found elsewhere.1

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Commercial reagent, used as received.
   (2) Distilled.

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