🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Mentele's class at CSU.
Analyze the structure of Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E and determine which is more soluble in water and fat.
Recall that water (H2O) is a polar molecule that exhibits hydrogen bonding, while fats/oil is a nonpolar molecule that exhibits dispersion forces. Using the concept of like dissolves like, we can determine which solvent is better for both compounds
The structures of vitamins E and B6 are shown below.
Predict which is more water soluble and which is more fat soluble.
