Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
Vapor pressure was determined by the method of Thomas, Smith, and Meatyard, and precautions were taken to avoid access of moisture. Readings at about 4° intervals were taken, and smoothed values were read off a large-scale plot of log p vs. t (°C). The apparatus was checked for leaks and evacuated to a pressure of about 0.004 Torr, after which dry air was admitted to room pressure. Ten mL of the test material was introduced into the boiler to give a depth of 15 mm, care being taken to avoid contamination by moist atmospheric air. The glass-fibre skirt was tied in position above, and at the bottom, of the bulb of the thermometer so as to ensure adequate contact, and extended to the bottom of the boiler. An A-shape vent was cut into the skirt below the bulb of the thermometer to allow free escape of vapour and to prevent capillary rise of liquid. The heating bath was heated to a temperature near the boiling point to be measured, and on pumping down, liquid soon refluxed from the cooling coil and rapid outgassing occurred without bumping of the liquid pool. After equilibration, the pressure was taken, and the temperature of the heating bath slowly raised until it was 30-40°C above the temperature recorded on the thermometer. The latter remained perfectly constant independent of bath temperature (and thus of vapour velocity) and was taken as the boiling point. The temperature of the bath is then appropriately reduced, the pressure increased, and the above procedure repeated and so on to cover the whole range of measurements.
