   The Alexejew's synthetic method of solubility determination was used.1 A fixed weight of water and 1,1,2,3,4,5,5,5-octachloro-1,3-pentadiene was sealed in a tube and subjected to gradually increasing  temperature with constant agitation. The appearance of an opalescence or clouding was an indication of saturation temperature. The temperature was then allowed to fall and an observation made, while the tube was  constantly agitated, to establish the temperature of the first appearance of opalescence. The observation was repeated several times.
