How to use Solutes in a sentence
Appreciate the importance of sugars as solutes in the cellular liquid.
They are usually insoluble in water, alcohol and ether; and their presence as solutes in vegetable and animal fluids is not yet perfectly understood, but it is probably to be connected with the presence of salts or other substances.
The theory most widely accepted at present is that glass is a quickly solidified solution, in which silica, silicates, borates, phosphates and aluminates may be either solvents or solutes, and metallic oxides and metals may be held either in solution or in suspension.
The reasoning given above is independent of the temperature, so that the variation with temperature of the osmotic pressure of a dilute solution must be the same as that of a gas, while Boyle's law must equally apply to both systems. Experimental evidence confirms these results, and extends them to the cases of non-volatile solutes - as is, indeed, to be expected, since volatility is merely a matter of degree.
Certain solvents, such as water, liquid ammonia or liquid hydrocyanic acid, possess the power of making some solutes, such as mineral salts and acids, when dissolved in them, conductors of electricity.Advertisement
The zone is weakly hydrogen-bonded, fluid and reactive, and accumulates small cations, multivalent anions and hydrophobic solutes.
The flow and pressure changes in the vessels allow fluid, smaller solutes, and plasma proteins to pass into the tissue spaces.
Solute atoms of similar size to those in the host lattice may substitute for host atoms - these are known as substitutional solute atoms of similar size to those in the host lattice may substitute for host atoms - these are known as substitutional solutes.
The rationale for the colligative properties is the increase in entropy on mixing solutes with the water.
Solute atoms of similar size to those in the host lattice may substitute for host atoms - these are known as substitutional solutes.Advertisement
The analysis is extended to a consideration of rate constants for chemical reactions between solutes in solution.
