I'm told by a friend of mine that hexane is soluble in ethanol, and she's looking for a reason why.
So my questions are:
1. Is hexane soluble in ethanol
2. If so, Why?
I have the CRAZIEST feeling that the two aren't miscible...after all, one is extremely polar and the other is extremely NON-polar. Hexane and water don't mix...so it follows that hexane and ethanol shouldn't either.
As for question 2, there's very little in my mind that can rationalize that kind of behaviour.
