Abstract

The decomposition of ammonium nitrite in water creates a supersaturated solution of nitrogen. The some process occurs in water-organic solvent mixtures. Acetone, dioxane, dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) and dimethylformamide (DMF) are the cosolvents wed in this study. The limits of supersaturation of nitrogen (C-SL/mol L(-1)) were determined in all of these solvent mixtures by releasing the dissolved gas sonicationally and measuring the volume of released gas. C-SL was generally increased in the presence of cosolvents. The effectiveness sequence of organic solvents was found to be as DMF
