Solubility is the property of a solid, liquid or gaseous chemical substance called solute to dissolve in a solid, liquid or gaseous iridis-photo-restoration.com solubility of a substance fundamentally depends on the physical and chemical properties of the solute and solvent as well as on temperature, pressure and presence of other chemicals (including changes to the pH) of the solution.
Physical Properties of Organic Compounds Introduction The main factors which affect melting points are the molecular weight and the polarity of the molecule, but they can also be influenced by the symmetry of the molecule (how well it packs into a crystal lattice).

Depending on deficiency in the positive or negative charge balance (locally or overall) of mineral structures, clay minerals are able to adsorb certain cations and anions and retain them around the outside of the structural unit in an exchangeable state, generally without affecting the basic silicate structure.
