Nothing about the water and hexane molecules attract each other. Therefore hexane is not soluble in water.
Beside above, what happens when hexane is mixed with water? If we add hexane to water, the hexane will float on the top of the water with no apparent mixing. When a hexane molecule moves into the water, London forces between hexane molecules and hydrogen bonds between water molecules are broken.
Simply so, why is hexane not soluble in water?
Thus neither hexane nor iodine dissolves in water. Polar and ionic solutes do not dissolve in non-polar solvents because they have a stronger attraction for each other than for the non-polar solvent molecules. Liquid hexane molecules are held together by London dispersion forces.
Which solvent is hexane or water?
Answer and Explanation: Water will dissolve Cu(NO3)2 C u ( N O 3 ) 2 . Hexane will dissolve CS2 C S 2 and CH3(CH2)16CH2OH C H 3 ( C H 2 ) 16 C H 2 O H .
