Oxygen solubility in frines.
Ind Eng Chem Process Des Dev 1984 Jul; 23(3):618-620
The solubility of oxygen in water and brines, expressed as the henry's law constant, is reported for temperatures from 0 to 300 deg c. A smoothing and interpolation formula based upon a widely used heat capacity equation fit the solubility data well over this temperature range and may be extrapolated to somewhat higher temperatures. The solubility of oxygen in water and brines exposed to air saturated with water vapor is given for temperatures from 0 deg c to the normal boiling point.
