## Abstract

A recently published revision of the absorption coefficients for oxygen in water has prompted a reinvestigation of the subject by a new microgasometric technique. A known volume of gas-free water (approximately 1 ml) was brought into contact with oxygen at constant pressure and temperature. The oxygen uptake and the amount of water were measured with a micrometer burette. The results obtained at $6^\circ$, $12^\circ$, $18^\circ$, and $24^\circ C$ confirm the standard handbook values of Winkler and Fox to within $\pm 1%$ of $\alpha$.
