Abstract Previous values obtained for the vapor pressure of tritiated water based on enrichment experiments in fractionating columns are reevaluated. The value obtained was 1.055 plus or minus 0.002 at 260 mm Hg. The main source of error is assumed to be the error in measuring the length of the column and the transfer coefficient for vapor-liquid interface. These values could not be measured directly and were calculated using the enrichment values of tritiated oxygen in the same system. (M.C.G.)
