We have to explain why laboratory procedures involving oxygen-sensitive reactants or products require water that is boiled and cooled.
The solubility of gases in solutions does not follow the same trend as solid substances.
The solubility of solids increases when the solutions are heated.
Some laboratory procedures involving oxygen-sensitive reactants or products call for using preboiled (and then cooled) water. Explain why this is so.
