If the solute and the solvent are miscible.


A saturated solution is usually prepared when a solute is added to a solvent and the maximum solubility is reached, so no more solute could be dissolved in the solvent.

However, if the solute and the solvent are miscible, this means that they can mix at all proportions , and therefore, it is not possible to form a saturated solution in this case.

An example to this, when ethanol is dissolved in water .
