1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Would sodium salicytate dissolve in any of the following solvents? Water Diethyl Ether 6% HCL 6% sodium bicarbonate 6% Sodium Hydroxide (naoh) You don't have to but please explain your guess too. Thanks a lot. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I think it would dissolve in water due to the three Carbon Oxygen bonds it has (giving it a tad bit of polarity) but ever so slightly. The big cyclohexane is non polar which is why it wouldn't dissolve well. I think it would dissolve well in diethyl ether, they are both extremely non polar. Diethyl ether is non polar due to its symmetry. I think it would dissolve in HCL. HCL is electron poor while the O in sodium salicytate is electron rich. The electron rich O would grab the H and give the pair of electrons to CL. The rest makes no sense to me.
