It’s in Their Nature: Solute-Solvent Interactions—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Relationships between opposites are difficult or even impossible; consider the nature of oil and water, solutes and solvents and why some substances do not dissolve in or mix well with others. With the It’s in Their Nature: Solute-Solvent Interactions—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, investigate the solubility of ionic, polar and nonpolar compounds in various solvents, then use the solubility patterns of different solutes and solvents to classify compounds and understand the nature of the interactions between solute and solvent particles.

Concepts

  • Solute and Solvent
  • Intermolecular Forces
  • Polar vs. Nonpolar
  • Miscibility of Liquids
