   An excess of 1,2-dibromoethane in 500 g water was shaken for 12 hours in a waterbath thermostat. Samples were then withdrawn and read against pure water in an interferometer made by Zeiss.1 A detailed description of the complete  procedure is given in a Ph. D. thesis.2

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Eastman Kodak Co., purified by fractional freezing five times before use.
   (2) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ± 1 %.
   Temperature: ± 0.02 K.
