Explain why CH3CHO is soluble in water, but CH3CH2CHO has only limited solubility.
Solubility Rules for Some Ionic Compounds in Water Soluble Ionic Compounds + + + All sodium (Na ), potassium (K ), and ammonium (NH ) salts are 4 1. SOLUBLE. All nitrate (NO )3 acetate (CH CO ), 3hlor2te (ClO ), and 3 2. perchlorate (ClO ) salts are SOLUBLE. 4 All chloride (Cl ), bromide (Br ), and iodide (I ) salts are SOLUBLE 2+ + 3. — EXCEPT those containing: lead, silver, or mercury (I) (Pb , Ag , Hg 22+) which are NOT soluble.
