No free moving charged particles
Very little energy is required to break the weak intermolecular forces
'Like dissolves like'
Polar molecules dissolve in polar solvents because there is a strong enough attraction between the molecules and solvent to dissolve.
Soluble in non-polar solvents
Not soluble in polar solvents (H2O)
eg CO2, CH4, C-H
Not soluble in non-polar solvents
Soluble in polar solvents (H2O)
eg NH3, SO2
Molecules held together by weak
