Also question is, which compounds are most soluble in water?
Among given compounds, ethylene glycol ( H O − C H 2 − C H 2 − O H HO-CH_2-CH_2-OH HO−CH2−CH2−OH ) is the most soluble in water. Ethylene glycol has two hydroxy groups both of which form hydrogen bonds with water.
One may also ask, which is the least soluble gas in water? Water (H2O) is a polar molecule that exhibits hydrogen bonding, so the least soluble gas would be a nonpolar compound.
In this regard, which compound is least soluble in water at 60?
(1) KClO3 (3) NaCl. (2) KNO3 (4) NH4Cl.
What makes a compound water soluble?
Positive is attracted to negative, making a cohesive structure. When polar compounds or ions are added to water, they break up into smaller components, or dissolve, to become part of the solution. The water's partial charges attract different parts of the compound, making them soluble in water.
