The first type of consideration concerns the type of unit, i.e., the preferred physical measure, such as fraction (ppm), weight per volume (mg/ml), or molarity (particles per volume; mM).
There is no existing standard mix design procedure to prepare fly ash and GGBS-based geopolymer concrete of required strength, therefore an attempt was made to develop a mix design procedure to prepare GPC of target strengths ranging from 20 to 60 MPa for outdoor curing conditions with low molarity of NaOH.

Vora and Dave [7] investigated that the compressive strength of the geopolymer concrete increases with the increase of concentration in terms of molarity of sodium hydroxide.
Effects of pH (3 to 7.25), flow rate, and the molarity of the running buffer were optimized using standards and human urine samples to improve the precision and accuracy.
The enzyme was eluted with same buffer using stepwise gradient (0.1M each) of increasing molarity of NaCl (0.1-1.0 M) at a flow rate of 12ml per hour (as shown in Fig 1).
The needed information for the calculation is the volume of EDTA titrant used and the molarity of the EDTA established in the standardization process.
Standard solutions are expressed in their normality or molarity. Substances used include acids like acetic acid, sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid in aqueous solution; bases like potassium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide; and salts like potassium chloride, calcium chloride, and ammonium sulfate.
The Lf isolated from camel milk whey using CM-Sephadex C-25 attached with FPLC was eluted at higher molarity. The results reflected that camel milk contained appreciable quantities of Lf (Fig.
At 84.9 W/g, the recovery yield of the carbohydrate extracts--polysaccharides, arabino-oligosaccharides and monosaccharides--was higher at high KOH molarity (22.4%), while the yield of alcohol insoluble carbohydrates (AIC) was higher at low molarity (18.8%).
