Ethers are slightly polar. The C–O–C bond angle in the functional group is about 110°, and the C–O dipoles do not cancel out. Ethers are more polar than alkenes but not as polar as alcohols, esters, or amides of comparable structure.What is the solubility of ether?
Ether is sparingly soluble in water at 6.9g/100. The low solubility makes the ether/water two phase mixture ideal for separation techniques.Is ethyl phenyl ether polar?
Ethyl phenyl ether or phenetole is an organic compound that is an ether. Ethyl phenyl ether has the same properties as some other ethers, such as volatility, explosive vapors, and the ability to form peroxides. It will dissolve in less polar solvents such as ethanol or ether, but not in polar solvents such as water. Sep 23 2019
