   The equilibration between 1,2-dibromoethane and water was established in a constant temperature room maintained at 20 °C for 24 hours. At the end of the time period, two samples were withdrawn from each unit and 1,2-dibromoethane was  determined by the catalytic thermal decomposition procedure. The decomposition products were absorbed in a solution of NaOH containing H2O2. The generated bromide was titrated with AgNO3 solution.1

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Laboratory sample, washed with NaHCO3 solution, dried over Na2SO4 and redistilled twice.
   (2) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
   Temperature: ± 0.05 K.
