Dalam ilmu kimia, konsentrasi adalah ukuran yang menggambarkan banyaknya zat di dalam suatu campuran dibagi dengan volume total campuran tersebut. Terdapat empat macam deskripsi kuantitatif konsentrasi, yaitu konsentrasi massa, konsentrasi molar, konsentrasi jumlah, dan konsentrasi volume.[1] Istilah konsentrasi dapat diterapkan untuk semua jenis campuran, tetapi paling sering digunakan untuk menggambarkan jumlah zat terlarut di dalam larutan.

Deskripsi kualitatif[sunting | sunting sumber]

These glasses containing red dye demonstrate qualitative changes in concentration. The solutions on the left are more dilute, compared to the more concentrated solutions on the right.

Often in informal, non-technical language, concentration is described in a qualitative way, through the use of adjectives such as "dilute" for solutions of relatively low concentration and "concentrated" for solutions of relatively high concentration. To concentrate a solution, one must add more solute (for example, alcohol), or reduce the amount of solvent (for example, water). By contrast, to dilute a solution, one must add more solvent, or reduce the amount of solute. Unless two substances are fully miscible there exists a concentration at which no further solute will dissolve in a solution. At this point, the solution is said to be saturated. If additional solute is added to a saturated solution, it will not dissolve, except in certain circumstances, when supersaturation may occur. Instead, phase separation will occur, leading to coexisting phases, either completely separated or mixed as a suspension. The point of saturation depends on many variables such as ambient temperature and the precise chemical nature of the solvent and solute.

Notasi kuantitatif[sunting | sunting sumber]

There are four quantities that describe concentration:

Konsentrasi massa[sunting | sunting sumber]

The mass concentration \rho_i is defined as the mass of a constituent m_i divided by the volume of the mixture V:

\rho_i = \frac {m_i}{V}

The SI-unit is kg/m3.

Konsentrasi molar[sunting | sunting sumber]

The molar concentration c_i is defined as the amount of a constituent n_i divided by the volume of the mixture V:

c_i = \frac {n_i}{V}

The SI-unit is mol/m3. However, more commonly the unit mol/L (= mol/dm3) is used.

Konsentrasi jumlah[sunting | sunting sumber]

The number concentration C_i is defined as the number of entities of a constituent N_i in a mixture divided by the volume of the mixture V:

C_i = \frac{N_i}{V}

The SI-unit is 1/m3.

Konsentrasi volume[sunting | sunting sumber]

The volume concentration \phi_i (also called volume fraction) is defined as the volume of a constituent V_i divided by the volume of all constituents of the mixture V prior to mixing:

\phi_i = \frac {V_i}{V}

The SI-unit is m3/m3.

Related quantities[sunting | sunting sumber]

Several other quantities can be used to describe the composition of a mixture. Note that these should not be called concentrations.

Normalitas[sunting | sunting sumber]

Normality is defined as the molar concentration c_i divided by an equivalence factor f_{eq}. Since the definition of the equivalence factor may not be unequivocal, IUPAC and NIST discourage the use of normality.

Molalitas[sunting | sunting sumber]

The molality of a solution b_i is defined as the amount of a constituent n_i divided by the mass of the solvent m_{solvent} (not the mass of the solution):

b_i = \frac{n_i}{m_{solvent}}

The SI-unit for molality is mol/kg.

Fraksi mol[sunting | sunting sumber]

The mole fraction x_i is defined as the amount of a constituent n_i divided by the total amount of all constituents in a mixture n_{tot}:

x_i = \frac {n_i}{n_{tot}}

The SI-unit is mol/mol. However, the deprecated parts-per notation is often used to describe small mole fractions.

Mole ratio[sunting | sunting sumber]

The mole ratio r_i is defined as the amount of a constituent n_i divided by the total amount of all other constituents in a mixture:

r_i = \frac{n_i}{n_{tot}-n_i}

If n_i is much smaller than n_{tot}, the mole ratio is almost identical to the mole fraction.

The SI-unit is mol/mol. However, the deprecated parts-per notation is often used to describe small mole ratios.

Fraksi massa[sunting | sunting sumber]

The mass fraction w_i is the fraction of one substance with mass m_i to the mass of the total mixture m_{tot}, defined as:

w_i = \frac {m_i}{m_{tot}}

The SI-unit is kg/kg. However, the deprecated parts-per notation is often used to describe small mass fractions.

Mass ratio[sunting | sunting sumber]

The mass ratio \zeta_i is defined as the mass of a constituent m_i divided by the total mass of all other constituents in a mixture:

\zeta_i = \frac{m_i}{m_{tot}-m_i}

If m_i is much smaller than m_{tot}, the mass ratio is almost identical to the mass fraction.

The SI-unit is kg/kg. However, the deprecated parts-per notation is often used to describe small mass ratios.

Dependence on volume[sunting | sunting sumber]

Concentration depends on the variation of the volume of the solution due mainly to thermal expansion.
