Summary of "A new method to measure oxygen solubility in organic solvents through optical oxygen sensing."

A new method to measure oxygen concentration in air-saturated organic solvents and binary mixtures has been developed. The methodology relies on the ability of HPLC columns to retain the molecular oxygen contained in different types of solvents which are injected into the system at 298.15 K. The outlet of the HPLC is coupled with an optical oxygen sensor which continuously measures changes in oxygen partial pressure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging method using LASERS that is used for mapping subsurface structure. When a reflective site in the sample is at the same optical path length (coherence) as the reference mirror, the detector observes interference fringes.

Homogeneous liquid preparations that contain one or more chemical substances dissolved, i.e., molecularly dispersed, in a suitable solvent or mixture of mutually miscible solvents. For reasons of their ingredients, method of preparation, or use, they do not fall into another group of products.

The method of measuring the dispersion of an optically active molecule to determine the relative magnitude of right- or left-handed components and sometimes structural features of the molecule.

A CHROMATOGRAPHY method using supercritical fluid, usually carbon dioxide under very high pressure (around 73 atmospheres or 1070 psi at room temperature) as the mobile phase. Other solvents are sometimes added as modifiers. This is used both for analytical (SFC) and extraction (SFE) purposes.

Products or parts of products used to detect, manipulate, or analyze light, such as LENSES, refractors, mirrors, filters, prisms, and OPTICAL FIBERS.
