I am currently writing the experimental section for a thesis in chemistry. Someone, who did the reaction I want to describe, wrote: "the gas was bubbled into the reaction mixture at such a rate that almost no excess gas was detected." However, to me, the wording rather seems like lab slang.
The following is a list of what I found
- the gas was passed into the solution (Link) I have never heard anyone say this and I don't really like it, but if this is right, I will have to accept it.
- the gas was introduced to/into (which?) the solution
- the gas was injected into the solution
For a better understanding of what I am aiming for: The gas was added so slowly, that the bubbles hardly ever reached the surface before being absorbed/dissolved. So the pressure was quite low.
So, what would best describe the slow addition of a gas to a solution?
