Based on solute-solvent interactions,

Question:

Based on solute-solvent interactions, arrange the following in order of increasing solubility in n-octane and explain. Cyclohexane, KCl, CH3OH, CH3CN.

Solution:

n-octane is a non-polar solvent. Therefore, the solubility of a non-polar solute is more than that of a polar solute in theĀ n-octane.

The order of increasing polarity is:

Cyclohexane < CH3CN < CH3OH < KCl

Therefore, the order of increasing solubility is:

KCl < CH3OH < CH3CN < Cyclohexane
