1. List the following four compunds in increasing order of polarity:
-Resorcinol, Anthracene, Benzoic Acid, and 4-Amino-1-naphthanesulfonic Acid, sodium salt.

2. Predict which solvent (ligroin, water, toluene) might solubilize each solute from the compounds listed above. Why in each case?

    I would like to help but not by answering the question. Exactly what do you not understand about the questions.

  • Organic Chemistry -

    I'll try to answer those questions. But I need someone to check for me.

    1) anthracene<resorcinol< 4-amino-1-naphthalenesulfonic acid< benzoic acid< sodium salt

    2) water soluble: sodium salt, benzoic acid

    Toulene soluble: antharcene, 4- amino-1-naphthalenesulfonic acid

    Ligroin soluble: resorcinol
