   A mixture of 10 to 20 cm3 1,2-dichloropropane in 500 cm3 of an aqueous MgSO4 solution in a bottle was placed in a water thermostat bath. The sample container was placed on a shaker and agitated until no more liquid droplets remained undissolved. One or more samples were syphoned out and the concentration of the 1,2-dichloropropane was determined using a Zeiss water interferometer.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Commercial reagent, fractinally distilled before use.
   (2) Kahlbaum chemical, certified grade.
   (3) Distilled.

Estimated Errors:
   Solubility: ± 2.5 %.
   Temperature: ± 0.01 K.
