FIGURE 2-6 Water as solvent. Water dissolves many crystalline salts by hydrating their component ions. The NaCl crystal lattice is disrupted as water molecules cluster about the Cl- and Na+ ions. The ionic charges are partially neutralized, and the electrostatic attractions necessary for lattice formation are weakened.
