 [sol´vent]
1. capable of dissolving other material.
2. the substance, usually a liquid, in which another substance (the solute) is dissolved to form a solution.

sol·vent

A liquid that holds another substance in solution, that is, dissolves it.
[L. solvens, pres. p. of solvo, to dissolve]

sol·vent

(sol'vĕnt)
A liquid that holds another substance in solution, i.e., dissolves it.
[L. solvens, pres. p. of solvo, to dissolve]

solvent

a liquid in which another substance (a SOLUTE) may be dissolved to form a solution; the solvent is the larger part of the solution.

The studied polar solvents were: water, methanol, ethanol, ethylene glycol, and 2-propanol; the amphiphilic solvents were: 2-butanol and cyclopentanol; and finally the nonpolar solvents were: n-hexane, toluene, and isooctane.
They are compatible with many nonpolar solvents, and hot mold additives.
Thermodynamic interactions of poly[2-(p- chlorophenyl)-1,3-dioxolane-4-yl] methyl acrylate- co-styrene (PCKPhDMA-co-St) and poly[2-(p- chlorophenyl)-1,3-dioxolane-4-yl] methyl acrylate- co-acrylonitrile (PCKPhDMA-co-AN) with alcohols as polar and alkenes as nonpolar solvents were investigated between 50 to 180 C degrees by IGC.
[29, 30] reported the aggregation behavior of the octyl viologen salt with the hydrophobic anion bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)amide in nonpolar solvents such as toluene, benzene, and chloroform.
Resistance of liquid coatings can be lowered by addition of polar solvents, but adding nonpolar solvents only raises resistance slightly if at all.
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.
Heteropoly acid dissolves in small molecule polar solvents such as water, ethanol, and acetone [15], and does not dissolve in macromolecular polar solvents or nonpolar solvents. Heteropoly acid has a unique acidity, and the acid can be adjusted by changing the composition of elements [13].
A factor should also be considered that BDE-209 is a nonpolar substance and it can dissolve in nonpolar solvents such as hexane, toluene, or acetone.
Nonpolar solvents, such as chloroform and EA-yielded fibers with an average diameter of 8-9 [micro]m, which is a significant increase.
