Clarification of the terms hydrophilic and hydrophobic is a prerequisite. The dipole action of water. Carbohydrates are hydrophilic substances which are soluble in water and alcohol. The -OH groups of carbohydrates are primarily responsible for their solubility. The solubility of glucose is examine in this experiment.
