Arising without doubt from its pre-eminence as a typical liquid, water has consistently been thought of by way of chemists because the unique solvent during which very various chemical reactions can ensue, either for preparational and for analytical reasons. This explains the very long-standing curiosity proven within the learn of aqueous suggestions. during this con nection, it has to be under pressure that the idea of Arrhenius and Ostwald (1887-1894) on electrolytic dissociation, used to be initially devised completely for ideas in water and that the 1st real idea of acidity caused by this is often associated with using this solvent. The newer improvement of various physico-chemical size equipment has made attainable a rise of information during this zone as much as a really complicated measure of systematization. hence at the present time we've on hand either a really great amount of experimental facts, including very sophisticated equipment of deduction and of quantitative remedy of chemical reactions in resolution which permit us to make the fullest use of this information. however, . it seems that particularly obtrusive at the moment that there are various chemical strategies which can't happen in water, and that its use as a solvent imposes 2 creation barriers. as a way to triumph over those obstacles, it was once common that curiosity might be drawn to solvents except water and that the hot probabilities hence unfolded may be explored.

On the other hand, if the cation and/or anion radii differ amongst themselve$, the distribution over the sublattice is not completely random. The reciprocal Coulomb effect favours (in accordance with 1-14) contact between ry ra} ry> ra} 52 SOLVENTS AND SOLUTES the smallest cation and the smallest anion, and of the largest cation and the largest anion. In consequence, if the solute cation X+ and the solute anion Y- are each smaller or larger at the same time than their homologue in the solvent, they will tend to associate (Kass> O), to a degree which increases as the difference in size becomes more marked.
There can be no * In aqueous solution the concentration is generally expressed in mol 1-1 (molarity, M); in the case of solvents other than water this unit is often replaced by that of molality: the number of moles of solute per kilogram of solvent (mol kg-1). In the two cases the concentration will be represented by the formula of the solute between square brackets: [ J. We can also use the mole fraction, a dimensionless number, in place of the concentration. 32 SOLVENTS AND SOLUTES question of incomplete ionization of the substance, which is already ionic in the pure state, so in order to explain this phenomenon the only possibility is an association of a greater or lesser part of the ions inside the solvent: aggregations of ions of opposite sign naturally reduce the number of charges able to take part in conductivity, hence the divergencies from Kohlrausch's law.
In the same way, dissolution calls into being interactions between the solute and the species of ionized solvent which surround it, interactions which correspond in a similar manner to a 'solvated' state of the foreign matter introduced. These interactions are generally speaking of the same nature as those set up inside other solvents: electrostatic forces, van der Waals forces, coordination SOLVENTS AND SOLUTES 43 bonds, even in certain cases hydrogen bonds. But, baving regard to the ionic nature of the solvent, one type of interaction becomes of prime importance in this case: the Coulomb forces of attraction and repulsion between electrically charged entities.
