Oxygen fugacity is an equivalent of the partial pressure of oxygen in a particular environment (atmosphere, rocks, etc.) corrected for the nonideal character of the gas.

The fugacity is a measure of a chemical's tendency to escape from the phase in which it exists to adjacent phases. It has the...
The principal advantage of introducing fugacity is that it enables all concentrations to be expressed in a single unit.
by Lev V. Eppelbaum
Oxygen fugacity is an important parameter in terrestrial systems, because it controls the content of FeO and Fe,O3, and also the stability of metallic iron. Higher oxygen fugacity means fewer iron silicates or fewer mafic minerals, because the ...
It has been shown in the preceding paper that for a given substance in a given state the fugacity is a definite property of which the numerical value can in most cases be readily determined, and which is well suited to serve as an exact measure ...

Fugacity is a thermodynamic property which is related to chemical equilibrium.
Distribution, Trends, and Governing Factors by Lisa H. Nowell, Paul D. Capel, Peter D. Dileanis
Fugacity is the thermodynamically driven escaping tendency of a chemical from a particular phase. It has units of pressure, and at low concentrations (such as usually occur in the environment) it is proportional to concentration. A difference in ...

Fugacity is the way of the sky, lending its fragile beauty for fleeting moments only to whisk it away on the breath of high-altitude winds. The evanescent nature of the sky's radiance is dependent upon the culmination of light, clouds, and often ...

Fugacity is a very misunderstood principle but can be defined as the escaping tendency of a particular component within a system (Glasstone 1946). The fugacity ratio (f/p0) under normal temperature and pressure conditions can be replaced ...

An important point to note here is that the intrinprinciple should also apply' sic oxygen fugacity is a quantity definable in terms of composition, temperature, and total pressure. The above discussions for intrinsic oxygen fugacities of binary ...

More convenient is to replace pressure of a real gas with the corrected variable fugacity (f), which is chosen in such a way that the form of the equation for real gas is the same as for an ideal gas: u-o,+rrin;-o-orms. (144) where p' is standard ...
Fugacity coeflicients of numerous pure gases are tabulated from low (¢,*=l) to high pressures for practical use. In Eq. (4) the reference pressure p* is the standard pressure, p+=p°=l atm; quantity p¢,* is called the fugacity of the pure gas Y,.
