   The synthetic method was used. A Reichert microscope, type RCH, equipped with a heating stage was used as described in Schmid, et al.1 The disappearance and reappearance of the interface between (1) and (2) could be observed without difficulty.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Fisher Scientific Co.; certified, No. N-98; n(20 °C, D) = 1.3820, d(20 °C) = 1134 g·L-1.
   (2) Some alcohols obtained from the Hormel Institute and from Lachat Chemicals; all other alcohols prepared by reduction of the corresponding methyl esters with lithium aluminum hydride; purified by gas-liquid partition chromatography.

Estimated Errors:

   Temperature: ± 0.5 K.
