Polarity of organic solvents

Based on what I observed in these years, I realized that not much people know how to differentiate the polarity of solvent. So, today I’m going to share the information about the polarity of each solvent by arranging them from most non polar to most polar solvent. Basically, I chose the most common solvents that present in the laboratory.


Alkane < Ether < Ester < Amine < Aldehyde = Ketone < Alcohol < Carboxylic acid < Amide
