Alcohols are said to be soluble in water but why n-Decyl alcohol is insoluble?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 7th Jun, 2016, 03:36: PM
The lower members of alcohols are highly soluble in water but the solubility decreases with increase in molecular weight. As the size of the molecule increases, the alkyl group becomes larger and thus prevents the formation of hydrogen bonds with water molecule and hence solubility decreases as there is increase in length of carbon chain.
