if oxygen which is non polar In nature can dissolve in water which is of polar nature then why can't all the non polar solvents dissolve in polar solvents..??

Expert Answer:

dissolution ( the property of a substance to dissolve ) depends on its ability to form hydrogen bonds, the energy needed for the same and the polarity.
oxygen meets up the criteria but all polar solvents may not.
