fat sol·'vents

organic liquids notable for their ability to dissolve lipids; usually, but not always, immiscible in water; for example, diethyl ether, carbon tetrachloride.

In the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, FKM is a good solution for applications with nonpolar solvents, aliphatic compounds, fats and oils.
It has been used as a polarity index for solvents (polar solvents [epslion] > 20, nonpolar solvents [epslion] < 20).
Then the sorption of a mixture of polar and nonpolar solvents is also investigated, with the sorption of each component of the mixture measured quantitatively.
The most important of these is the omnipresent water, which stabilizes polar species--especially ions--in nonpolar solvents and hence shifts the acid--base equilibria leading to erroneous results in the measurements of acidity or basicity.
These TPUs feature good balance of resistance to fuels, oils and most nonpolar solvents often found in industrial work environments, as well as high compressive strength, low compression set, low gas and vapor permeability and low extractability levels.
Using computer simulations of water and five nonpolar solvents, they calculated "the likelihood of finding, at an arbitrary point in the solvent, an atomic-sized cavity that could accommodate the solute.
Highly polar solvents such as alcohols and glycol ethers have low resistances, and nonpolar solvents such as hydrocarbons have very high resistances.
Nonpolar solvents, such as chloroform and EA-yielded fibers with an average diameter of 8-9 [micro]m, which is a significant increase.
New fluorosilicone compounds and copolymers are being developed with improved resistance to the traditional materials, such as fuels, nonpolar solvents and hydraulic fluids, and with reduced swelling in materials such as ketones and esters.
The dielectric properties of polyolefins and their nonpolar solvents result in the need to use additives that enhance the conductivity of the spinning melts or solution (4), (5).
