solubility

(ˌsɒljʊˈbɪlɪtɪ)
n, pl -ties
1. (Chemistry) the ability of a substance to dissolve; quality of being soluble
2. (Chemistry) a measure of this ability for a particular substance in a particular solvent, equal to the quantity of substance dissolving in a fixed quantity of solvent to form a saturated solution under specified temperature and pressure. It is expressed in grams per cubic decametre, grams per hundred grams of solvent, moles per mole, etc

The permeability coefficient of a substance is determined by the formula P = D x S, in which D is the diffusion coefficient and S is the solubility coefficient [24].
Permeability is the product of the diffusion coefficient and solubility coefficient and hence the local chemical structure can play as important a role as the void size.
Gas transport measurements were conducted in a permeation cell, (4) where the permeability, P, the diffusion coefficient, D, and the solubility coefficient, S, of the coating were measured.
The permeability coefficient is determined by two material properties; the solubility coefficient, S, and the diffusion coefficient, D:
It should be stressed, however, that many of the calculated or estimated parameters reported as part of a blood-gas analysis assume that the values for the dissociation constant (pK) for carbonic acid, solubility coefficient (~) for C[O.sub.2], [O.sub.2] affinity of hemoglobin, and 2- and 3-DPG levels are those that are observed in normal, healthy patients.
Once the steady-state P is established, an isostatic-desorption experiment can be conducted to determine the equilibrium solubility coefficient. Because the diffusion coefficient is changing with time and/or concentration, this method evaluates only the equilibrium amount of permeant absorbed in the material.
For the description of ozonation processes in a three-phase system gas/water/ solvent it is necessary to know the solubility coefficient of ozone in each of the liquid phases as well as its partition coefficient between the phases.
In order to construct an effective model for the solubility coefficient (related to the permeability model of gas transport in polymer membranes [4,13]), we include the Lennard-Jones characteristic constant force potential ([epsilon]/[kappa]) which describes the interactions between gas-gas molecules as a function of the distance [11].
As long as Henry's Law is obeyed, the permeability coefficient, P, is related to the solubility coefficient, [S.sub.o], by the diffusion coefficient, D.
According to the solution-diffusion mechanism, the apparent solubility coefficient (5) can be evaluated as follows:
where S is the gas solubility coefficient [[cm.sup.3](STP)/[cm.sup.3]atm] predicted for each of the membrane surfaces based on the gas mixture composition and pressure near them using the ANN model in the proposing algorithm.
