   250 cm3 bottles were filled with distilled, deionized water and sealed. Measured volumes of 1,2-dibromoethane were injected into the bottles through each bottle septum using a microliter syringe. The solute was in excess of the  anticipated solubility limit. The bottles were shaken for 1 hour with a wrist-action shaker and allowed to equilibrate for about three weeks. Samples were then injected into a gas chromatograph equipped with a Carbopack column and a FID detector. The GC responses were compared with calibration plots to obtain concentrations.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Probably a commercial reagent, at lest 99 % pure, used as received.
   (2) Distilled and deionized.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: Not specified.
