In which solvent? In water its solubility is likely very poor.


Napthalene is a non-polar organic solute with formula #C_10H_8#. It's solubility in water, even hot water, a polar solvent, is likely to be poor. Napthalene (or mothballs) would have some solubility in polar organic solvents such as methylene chloride.
