   A 5 μL 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane sample was injected into a 2.3 dm3 equilibration cell containing distilled water. After the cell was shaken vigorously for about 5 minutes, the homogeneity of the liquid sample was maintained with a  magnetic stirrer. Compressed air was passed through the cell and the gas flow was measured with a soap film flowmeter. The 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane content was extracted and analyzed using a dual flame ionization detector gas chromatograph.
