Oxygen solubility

Description

The oxygen solubility, SO2 [µM/kPa], expresses the oxygen concentration in solution in equilibrium with the oxygen pressure in a gas phase, as a function of temperature and composition of the solution. SO2 is 10.56 µM/kPa in pure water at 37 °C. At standard barometric pressure (100 kPa), the oxygen concentration at air saturation is 207.3 µM at 37 °C (19.6 kPa partial oxygen pressure). In MiR06 and serum, the corresponding saturation concentrations are 191 and 184 µM. The oxygen solubility depends on temperatue and the concentrations of solutes in solution.
