Polar Molecule

In chemistry, a polar molecule is a molecule in which the centers of positive and negative charge distribution do not converge. These molecules are characterized by a dipole moment which measures their polarity.

Polar compounds are highly soluble in other polar compounds, and virtually insoluble in nonpolar compounds.
