Experiment 16: Colligative Properties General Chemistry I and II Lab Manual Dakota State University page 169 of 232 test polarity. It also provides insight around the home. If you wanted to remove peanut butter from a container, for example, you know that water will not work. Well, since water will not work, it might be worth your while to try a non-polar solvent first, like cooking oil. Once the peanut butter is gone, the cooking oil can be easily removed by detergent. The presence of a solute in a solution will influence the properties of the solution. That a solute will dissolve in a solvent to any extent means that the interaction between the solvent and solute molecules (or ions) is more energetically favorable than the interactions between the molecules (or ions) of the solute alone. In other words, the presence of the solute will attract solvent to itself and hold onto it strongly. This results in stronger intermolecular interactions in a solution than you would have in the solvent
