Water solubility if we are comparing the water

This preview shows page 18 - 37 out of 41 pages.

Water Solubility If we are comparing the water solubility of two similar molecules, the one with the higher percentage of the molecule that is polar ( hydrophilic ) is expected to have higher water solubility. We predict that the molecule with the higher percentage of its structure that is nonpolar ( hydrophobic ) to be less soluble in water.
