What happens with water and chloroform and soap solution combined?

Water is a polar solvent while chloroform is a non-polar solvent. There is a popular aphorism used for predicting solubility which is "like dissolves like". Water and chloroform have different solubility. Therefore, chloroform is insoluble in water and will just form a layer when mixed. But in the presence of soap solution, they can mix together. Soap serves as an emulsifying agent that will reduce the surface tension of the solution.

What is the solubility of ethyl cellulose in ethanol?

Practically insoluble in water, in glycerol, and in propane-1,2-diol, but soluble in varying proportions in certain organic solvents, depending upon the ethoxyl content. Ethyl cellulose containing less than 46-48% of ethoxyl groups is freely soluble in tetrahydrofuran, in methyl acetate, in chloroform, and in aromatic hydrocarbon ethanol mixtures. Ethylcellulose containing 46- 48% or more of ethoxyl groups is freely soluble in ethanol, in methanol, in toluene, in chloroform, and in ethyl acetate.

Would chloroform float on water?

Is chloroform soluble in chloroform?

Solubility is defined as the ability of an chemical substance(solute) to dissociate in inside another chemical substance (solvent) to form a homogeneous solution. Thus , the solute and the solvent must be 2 different chemical substances. In this case, both substances are similar. So by mixing them together, we cannot measure solubility.
