Reactions in Aqueous Solutions – Part 1 Chemical Reaction Classification Water as the Solvent – Solubility of Ionic Compounds KBr( s ) → K + ( aq ) + Br ( aq ) Ions are solvated by water and the solution conducts electricity thus KBr is an electrolyte . Polar Nature of Water – Molecular Shape and Hydration The universal solvent – Some ionic compounds dissolve to a greater extent in water than others. NaCl solubility in water at 20 o C = 365 g / L AgCl solubility in water at 20 o C = 0.009 g / L The electrostatic attraction of silver ions and chloride ions is greater than the ions attraction for water. Covalent Molecules Dissolve in Water . Table sugar (sucrose), ethanol and antifreeze all have their own polar O – H bonds which interact with those of water. These polar substances dissolve in water as molecules (not ions) and are called nonelectrolytes (solutions will not conduct electric current). A small but very important group of H-containing covalent
