What is an example of polar compound?
There are several examples of polar compound that can be found around the globe. One of the most recognized examples is water.
An example of a polar aprotic solvent is THF, or tetrahydrofuran. It has the carbon-oxygen bond making it polar, but it has no protons that can freely dissociate form the compound. An example of a non-polar aprotic solvent is hexanes. hexanes have only carbon-hydrogen and carbon-carbon bonds, making it non-polar. They also do not have any protons that can freely dissociate from the compound
normal chromatography based on polarity and non polarity principle If mobile phase is polar, compound is non polar,then non polar compound first elutes as peak and then followed by polar compound reverse chromatography is if the mobile phase is polar, the polar compound first elutes and then followed by non polar compound
For example, one functional group important to living things, the hydroxyl group, -OH, can make the molecule it is attached to polar. Polar molecules are hydrophilic, or soluble in water. Alocohol is an organic compound with a hydroxyl group attached to one of its carbon atoms. The hydroxyl group makes an alcohol a polar molecule.
