Which of these compounds are soluble or insoluble in methylene chloride? ether, white oil and benzene?
Methylene chloride is completely miscible in ether and benzene, and probably in white oil too.
like disolves like. Polar dissolves polar. Non polar disolves nonpolar. I'm not sure which is which in that list but it must tell you somewhere in your book :)
methylene chloride is a polar solvent. Benzene is non-polar. Ether is polar, so it will be soluble in methylene chloride. I'm not sure about white oil... but i think that it is soluble too
