Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

Guaiacol solution (1000 ppm) was placed in a headspace vial, sealed, thermostated and then pressurized to ca. 179 kPa gauge. The vapour was sampled and analysed by gas chromatography. The Henry's law constant measured was 0.11 Pa.m3/mole at 25°C.
