Solubility and Polarity

Abstract

Since the phenomenon of solubility is one of such common occurrence and universal familiarity, it is no wonder that a great many attempts have been made to learn the cause of it. The molecular weight of solute and solvent, the dielectric constants, the size of the molecules concerned, the surface tensions of the components, adsorption, the vapor pressure above the solution, the magnitude of Van der Waal's a and b for the components, their internal pressures · as determined by a great many different methods - all these and many other avenues of approach have been used, only to be discarded again because they did not lead to a solution of the problem. Combinations of some of these factors also have been investigated in the hope that solubility might be found to depend jointly on several of these characteristics.
