Reference Entry
A definition of the term "saturation" is presented. It refers to the state in which all of a substance that can be dissolved in a solution is dissolved. In organic chemistry, the term refers to have all available carbon atom valences satisfied so that there are no double or triple bonds between the carbon atoms.

    Methanol is an amphiphilic solute whose aqueous solutions exhibit distinctive physical properties. The volume change upon mixing, for example, is negative across the entire composition range, indicating strong association. We explore the corresponding behavior of a Jagla solvent, which has been...
