List of Polar Solvents?

Answer

A solvent is a type of substance that dissolves a chemically different gas, liquid, or solid. The solvent generally is a liquid but can be either a gas or a solid. The quantity max of the solute will vary depending on the temperature. The uses for solvents are often found in dry cleaning, paint thinners, and nail polish remover. A list of polar solvents may include acetone, dimethylformamide, acetonitirle, and dimethyl sulfoxide. The list of solvents contain a large dielectric constant of more then 20 dipole moments.

There are two types of solvents. Solvents are classified based on their polarity. That means there are polar solvents and non-polar solvents. There are specific characteristics that indicate whether a solvent is polar or non-polar. Polar solvents have a replaceable hydrogen atom. Water is a polar solvent. Non-polar compounds do not have replaceable hydrogen and they do not have an electronegative element in their molecule. Polar molecules have high dielectric constants and large dipole moments.
