Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by April on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 3:46pm.

In my experiment I placed NaCl in glycerin for 10 minutes or more and it did not dissolve. I have looked to see if glycerin is polar or nonpolar and the information uses glycerol and glycerin interchangeably, yet they are not the same. Some information states it is polar and other sites say it is nonpolar. The chemical structure of glycerin has 2 primary and 1 secondary hydroxyl groups. This to me would classify it as polar. What is your opinion? Thanks!!!
