Lipids are categorized by the fact that they have complicated solvation ...
On a molecular level, if the ink is soluble in water, water molecules surround the ink molecules, forming a little “solvation cage” because of the attractive forces between the water molecules and ink molecules.
Even the more typical, reliable reactions one might run are so dependent on so many factors people write books on nothing but solvation effects in reactions, for instance that although one starts with some end in mind, no one really ‘predicts’ what will happen with any authority, and even if they do, the rest of us wait for the pudding before declaring that it tastes good.
It should be recognized that superelectrophilic reactions frequently proceed with only "electrophilic assistance" (solvation, association) by the superacids without forming distinct dipositive intermediates.
This then, my dear frinds I conceive to be true religion, and it is upon these principles that I hope for solvation through the merits of my Saviour.

To Which Is Added His Dying Confession or Declaration. Also, a Copy of a Letter to His Wife, Written the Day Previous to His Execution
Atomic solvation parameters and fragmental atom volumes were added using the AddSol program provided in the Autodock 3.0.5 suite.

The polar solvation energy was calculated with the finite-difference PB equation solver by using AMBER toolset.
This is the balanced equation of solvation of Ca (OH) 2 in water i figured:
The researchers worked with a system in which the dye, betaine-30, was immediately surrounded by a solvation shell of 10 molecules of NaSCN solvent in a larger solution of ethyl acetate.
