Degassing

  • degassing, also known as degasification, is the removal of dissolved gases from liquids, especially water or aqueous solutions. there are numerous methods for removing gases from liquids.

    gases are removed for various reasons. chemists remove gases from solvents when the compounds they are working on are possibly air- or oxygen-sensitive (air-free technique), or when bubble formation at solid-liquid interfaces becomes a problem. the formation of gas bubbles when a liquid is frozen can also be undesirable, necessitating degassing beforehand.
