Solubility

Only one rule to know here: Like polarity dissolves like polarity

Want a vodka tonic right about now?  The reason they mix together is due to similar polarity between molecules. Not that you should know about this if you are under the age of 21! Duh.  

An aqueous solution is one with water. That’s pretty much it.  The following molecules are commonly used in organic chemistry- so it’s a good idea to know what their solubilities are.
