   An excess of 1,1,1-trichloroethane was added to water and stirred vigorously for 24 hours. After settling at 25 °C for 48 hours the solution was extracted with cyclohexane. The samples were analyzed using an Aminco-Bowman spectrophotofluorometer.  A detailed description of the method has been reported elsewhere.1
