Can we include polar/non-polar Solvents in Solutions unit?
It was helpful to be able to demonstrate the insolubility of SiO2 - but it would be nice to be able to show non-polar solutes dissolving in non-polar solvents (I do a polar/non-polar solubility lab).
Hey Dane - sorry I missed your reply. Any nonpolar solvent such as carbon tetrafluoride would work with nonpolar solutes such as Napthalene, Iodine, etc. It's more about the concept of polarity & like dissolves like.
