IMMISCIBILITY: OCTANOL AND WATER<br />
Octanol Is Immiscible With Water<br />
Octanol, [CH3(CH2)6CH2OH], is a polar compound, but has a larger nonpolar part, CH3(CH2)CH6CH2_, it is therefore immiscible w/water because it takes more energy to hydrogen bond w/water than to bond to itself. The molecules are squeezed out of the water.
