What is the difference between polar protic solvent and polar aprotic solvent?
-Polar protic solvent has a hydrogen atom attached to a strongly electronegative element (e.g. oxygen) that forms hydrogen bonds. On the other hand, polar aprotic solvents are those solvents whose molecules do not have a hydrogen atom that's attached to an atom of an electronegative element. -Polar protic solvent solvate cations and anions effectively while aprotic solvents do not solvate anions to any appreciable extend. -Polar protic solvents are more suitable for SN1 reactions, while aprotic solvents are used for SN2 reactions Reference: Organic Chemistry 9/e,...

What type of solvent is best suited to dissolve ionic or highly polar substance?
The type of solvent that is best suited to dissolve an ionic or a highly polar solvent would also be highly polar, probably a polar protic solvent like water or alcohol. ...

Does salt dissolve in all liquids?
salts dissolve in protic solvents do to the polar nature of salts and the solvent (like dissolves like). ie. water (protic) and sodium chloride (ionic) = Na+ + Cl- in water an example of a nonprotic solvent is DCM (dichloromethane). it is nonpolar and doesnt really react much with ions. this is something you will need to know to pass an organic chemistry. ...

What is the relationship between hydrogen bonding and polarity?
Abstract The emission spectra of styrene (ST)-triethylamine (TEA) systems were measured under steady-state illumination conditions in some tetrahydrofuran (THF)-protic solvent mixtures. The fluorescence spectrum of the ST-TEA system in THF consists of two bands (band A at 304 nm (fluorescence of ST) and band B at 460 nm (emission from an exciplex)). The intensity of band A increased and that of band B decreased with increasing amounts of protic solvents in THF-protic solvent mixtures. The increase in the intensity of band A was...

Is ammonium hydroxide soluble in ethanol?
Ammonia hydroxide is a protic solvent however ethanol is aprotc or organic solvent in ethanol very week hydrogen bondings are formed so ammonia hydroxide partially soluble in ethanol when we heated it (increasing of reactivity) we can see the comlete solubility ...

Why you add acetic acid in bromination?
acetic acid is a polar protic solvent. protic solvents have highly developed structures held together with H-bonds.smaller ion like F- can fit easily into these cages and becomes less nucleophile. while larger anion like, Br-can't fit and remains as anion. so becomes more available nucleophiles for attck in reaction. ...

What is the purpose of the acetic acid in bromination of cholesterol?
The acetic acid provides a polar, protic solvent for the reaction to occur in. This helps to stabilize the carbocation(cholesterol). This speeds up an assists the reaction. For more information you can read the Wikipedia page on SN1 reactions, or do other research on SN1. ...

What is the difference between SN1 and SN2 reactions?
An SN1 reaction will occur if: The substrate can form a relatively stable carbocation (typically from a tertiary carbon) The nucleophile is relatively weak A polar protic solvent is used. An SN2 reaction will occur if: The substrate is with a relatively unhindered leaving group (typically from a methyl, primary, or secondary alkyl halide) The nucleophile is strong (usually negatively charged) and is of high concentration The solvent used is polar and aprotic. ...

What are the Differences between polar solvent and non polar solvent?
A polar solvent is more stable than a non polar solvent. An example of a polar solvent is water. A non polar solvent has more charged molecules. A non polar solvent cannot dissolve in a polar solvent. ...
