   A weighted amount of 1,1-dichloroethane was mixed with 1000 g water in a bottle and immersed in a waterbath thermostat. The bottle was placed on a shaker and shaken until no more droplets of the liquid remained undissolved. The concentration of  1,1-dichloroethane in water was determined using a Zeiss water interferometer. One or more samples were syphoned out for the determination of the solubility. The German translation of the article is also published.1

   (1) Commercial reagent, fractionally distilled before use.
   (2) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
