polar solvents

po·lar sol·'vents

solvents that exhibit polar forces on solutes, due to high dipole moment, wide separation of charges, or tight association, for example, water, alcohols, acids.

low moisture and water vapor permeability, and excellent chemical resistance against polar solvents and solutions including acids, bases, esters, and alcohols but only moderate heat resistance and poor chemical resistance against nonpolar solvents like alkanes, ethers, and oils.
The highest molecular orbital energies of 1 occurred in the calculations with polar solvents. The calculated energies in hexane are lower than that of polar solvents but slightly higher than gas phase.
The extraction principle is to dissolve the polar substances in polar solvents and non-polar substances in non-polar solvents [14].
integrifolia leaves and stem were shade dried and macerated with two polar solvents i.e.
Many researchers calculated TPC from different parts of plants and most of them reported significantly higher values of TPC obtained by using polar solvents [42, 43].
The system is operated under a full vacuum with non-halogenated hydrocarbons or modified alcohols (polar solvents) and it is easy to change from one solvent to the next.
The binder is reported to offer high thermal properties, good surface and wetting properties, and compatibility with glycol and polar solvents.
They also have poor resistance to polar solvents. With some cyanoacrylates, blooming--or the white haze that can form on the assembly around the bond line--may occur.
3, this decreasing linear zone is observed, for association solvents and for polar solvents starting at least from 60[degrees]C, but is not observed for dispersion solvents.
