Sevoflurane is fluorinated methyl isopropyl ether, a newer halogenated volatile anesthetic, has some chemical advantages, lower blood gas solubility resulting in a faster onset and rapid emergence, pleasant to inhale, offers good hemodynamic stability, Moreover, there appears to be an opinion among cardiac anesthesiologists that sevoflurane is superior to Isoflurane3,4.

[[lambda].sub.i-c], [[lambda].sub.i-a], and [[zeta].sub.i-a-c] are known as Pitzer parameters and they are usually estimated from gas solubility data from aqueous solutions with dissolved salts.
To study gas--liquid two-phase coupling seepage, the saturation of gas and liquid, and gas solubility are only consider, with no regard of source-sink, and changes of temperature, the two-phase fluid flow is in line with Darcy's law.
Note that the minimum temperature must be set above the polymer glass transition temperature to get significant gas solubility in the matrix.
Crude oil density and viscosity is strongly dependent on solution gas-oil ratio or gas solubility (Rs).
The backcalculation of the effective diameter using the values of gas solubility shows the systematic increase of [d.sub.ef]/[d.sub.min] ratio as the Lennard-Jones characteristic constant force potential ([epsilon]/[kappa]) increases (Figure 1).

Specific topics discussed include controlling automobile automatic parking, a non-circulatory planetary gear pump, estimating the forest biomass in the North Dexingan Mountains using remote sensing, measuring gas solubility in waxy crude oil saturated with nitrogen and natural gas, and comparing and analyzing the distribution of pore size in cotton yarn and fabric.
Relatively large quantities of hydrogen can be present in the molten metal at normal melting and pouring temperatures, and the excess will be rejected upon solidification of the alloy because of lower gas solubility in the solid metal.
