    This solute will be referred to as a tracer.

    Is that sentence correct?
    How to use 'refer to as' (or) 'refer to as'? Meantime,should I use 'or' or 'and' in the sentence "How to use 'refer to as' (or) 'refer to as'?"?

    Thanks!

    Re: This solute will be referred to as a tracer.

    Why are you using refer? It doesn't sound very natural to me, but this would depend on the wider context.

    What do you imagine would go where your ellipsis is? Give us an example of what "refer to ... as" would look like. I don't know what you mean.

    Re: This solute will be referred to as a tracer.

    1. We generally refer to plays as the theater, and films as movies.
    2. The people we refer to as Net Worms are addicted to the Internet.
    3.People who work in offices are usually referred to as "white collar workers".

    Are the last two correct as well?

    Thanks!

    Re: This solute will be referred to as a tracer.

    Is 'slovend' more commonly used than 'solute' while 'solute' is a professional term?

    Thanks!

    I assume you meant "solvent". The solvent is what the solute is dissolved in.
