- If the solution of "NaCl in water" a chemical reaction, then will the chemical properties of this solution differ than that of its constituents(NaCl and H2O)?
When you dissolve, for example, NaCl in water, then you get "NaCl in water" solution. Will the "NaCl in water " solution have different chemical properties from its constituents(NaCl and H2O)? i.e. is a "NaCl in water" solution a new compound with respect to NaCl or H2O ? And is the ion surrounded by water molecules (solvation shell) a new compound?
