A solvent is a liquid or gas that dissolves another solid, liquid, or gaseous solute, resulting in a solution that is soluble in a certain volume of solvent at a specified temperature. The use of inorganic solvents (other than water) is typically limited to chemical synthesis in research chemistry and some technological processes. When one substance is dissolved into another, a solution is formed with a chemical bond. A mixture is where one compound is added to another to create a new substance and no chemical bond is formed. No residue is left in the bottom of the mixing vessel. The mixing is referred to as miscibility, whereas the ability to dissolve one compound into another is known as solubility. In addition to mixing, both substances in the solution can interact with each other in specific ways. Solvation describes these interactions. When something is dissolved, molecules of the solvent arrange themselves around molecules of the solute. Heat is involved and entropy is increased making the solution more thermodynamically stable than the solute alone. This arrangement is mediated by the respective chemical properties of the solvent and solute. Solvents can be broadly classified into two categories: polar and non-polar. The dielectric constant of the solvent provides a rough measure of a solvent's polarity. The strong polarity of water is indicated, at 20ºC, by a dielectric constant of 80.10. Solvents with a dielectric constant of less than 15 are generally considered to be non-polar.

These tables give some commonly used solvents in the laboratory with some of their useful properties. Select either from a list or according to the boiling point that is required for a particular reaction. Solvents not in the ACE CHEMICALS REGISTER, because of our commitment to human safety, enviromental protection, the Responsible Care Initiative and the Montreal Protocol, have been excluded.
