Here's what I get.


Naphthalene is a nonpolar compound.

Thus, it is insoluble in highly polar solvents like water.

However, it is soluble in nonpolar and slightly polar solvents such as

  • benzene
  • toluene
  • carbon disulfide
  • carbon tetrachloride
  • chloroform
  • ethanol
  • methanol
