1 Abstract Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Kralove Department of: Pharmaceutical Technology Consultant: Assoc. Prof. Zdenka Sklubalova, Ph.D. Student: Alexandros Papadopoulos Title of Thesis: Osmolality of electrolyte infusions The aim of this thesis is to study the osmotic properties of model infusion solutions of sodium chloride and potassium chloride. In a concentration range of 0.01 - 1,00mol/kg, density at 20řC and osmolality is measured. The average values of density at 20řC and/or osmolality are used to convert molality to molarity and osmolality to osmolarity, respectively. The average partial specific volume and the average molal volume of the dissolved solute 0.29 ml/g and 16.80 ml/molwas estimated experimentally for sodium chloride. For potassium chloride, the average volumes are 0.36 ml/g and 26.84 ml/mol, respectively.
