Solubility of oxygen in the Dead Sea brine

  title={Solubility of oxygen in the Dead Sea brine},
  author={Aminadav Nishri and Sam Ben-Yaakov},
The solubility of the O2 in the Dead Sea brine was determined over the temperature range 5 °C–50 °C using a modified Winkler titration, volumetric analysis, and a polarographic sensor. The solubility at room temperature and 1 atmosphere pressure was ca. 1 mg l−1, and the temperature coefficient 0.006 mg 1−1° C−1 . The data are nearly consistent with sea water solubility extrapolated to Dead Sea brine salinity.
