sol·vate

(sol'vāt),
A nonaqueous solution or dispersoid in which a noncovalent or easily reversible combination occurs between solvent and solute, or dispersion means and disperse phase; when water is the solvent or dispersion medium, it is called a hydrate.

The importance of the ability of polar molecules to solvate ions was discussed in the introduction.
The structures of three of these solvates (with ethylacetate, acetonitrile and methanol) were all obtained from single-crystal data, whereas the crystal structure of the parent compound itself has been solved from powder diffraction data using the Monte Carlo technique [8].
In solvents with a low D that also lack the ability to solvate ions (hydrocarbons, halohydrocarbons) the interaction does not go beyond the initial hydrogen bond or contact ion pair formation.
Processing can also be achieved by dissolving the block copolymer in a solvent that will solvate both phases.
Prorex 15 is a mild extraction solvate, a lower aromaticity alternative developed to meet certain customer specifications.
Owing to its polarity and high dielectric constant it acts as solvent for organic and inorganic compounds and forms many stable solvates [3-4].
The bubbles expand and condense into a liquid that solvates and softens degraded resins and remnants of the previous color or material.
Solvates are crystalline materials made of the same chemical substance, but with molecules of solvent regularly incorporated into a unique molecular packing.
