Original Measurements:
   Cornish, R.E.; Archibald, R.C.; Murphy, E.A.; Evans, H.M., Ind. Eng. Chem. 26, 397 (1934).

   Temperature = 354 K

Prepared By:
   Valerii P. Sazonov

Experimental Remarks:

   The upper critical solution temperature (UCST) was reported to be 81.0 °C (354.2 K, compiler).

Experimental Data:   (Notes on the Nomenclature)
   The synthetic method was used. Determinations were made in test tubes, which were heated and allowed to cool slowly in air. Thermometers were roughly calibrated.

Source and Purity of Materials:
   (1) Prepared from sodium cyanide and dimethyl sulfate; the crude product was distilled and successively washed with solid sodium hydroxide and P2O5; carefully fractionated in a 6.09-meter column; d(20 °C,4 °C)=0.78215.
   (2) Source not specified; fractionated in a 6.09-meter column; boiling point = (99.3 ± 0.05) °C, melting point = -(107.5 ± 0.5) °C; n(20 °C, D) = 1.391 62; d(20 °C,20 °C) = 0.693 14.
