Does the pH of water affect the dissolved oxygen at room temperature (20 d. celsius). Also, does the pH affect the dissolved oxygen at 10 d. celsius and 40 d. celsius. In other words, I know that the temperature affects the amount of dissolved oxygen but what about the pH affecting and dissolved oxygen. Thank you, Jeanette

In general, the answer is no. Since oxygen is neutral, one would not expect pH to affect its solubility in water.
