2. The amount of a substance that can be dissolved in a given amount of solvent.

solubility

(ˌsɒljʊˈbɪlɪtɪ)
n, pl -ties
1. (Chemistry) the ability of a substance to dissolve; quality of being soluble
2. (Chemistry) a measure of this ability for a particular substance in a particular solvent, equal to the quantity of substance dissolving in a fixed quantity of solvent to form a saturated solution under specified temperature and pressure. It is expressed in grams per cubic decametre, grams per hundred grams of solvent, moles per mole, etc

For many polymers, fuel compatibility is primarily determined by the mutual solubility existing between the polymer and the fuel (also known as the solute and solvent, respectively).
Whether dietary Cu improves the growth performance by affecting the condition of gastrointestinal tract, by promoting the systemic action, or both, liberation of Cu from the compound is critical to elucidate its growth-promoting mechanisms in pigs, which may be partially explained by in vitro solubility.
9,259,377 B2; Colgate-Palmolive has patented a method of preparing a dentifrice comprising a polymer matrix film with a low solubility flavorant in the following steps: forming a polymer matrix film in the substantial absence of a low solubility flavorant; wherein said polymer matrix comprises a water soluble polymer and a low solubility polymer additive; forming a dentifrice base comprising a low solubility flavorant; combining the polymer matrix film with the dentifrice base; and maintaining the combined polymer matrix film and dentifrice base for an amount of time suitable for an effective amount of said low solubility flavorant to transfer from said dentifrice base to said polymer matrix film.
In addition, solubility of restorative materials is of concern, since inorganic ions can leach into the surrounding environment resulting in breakdown of the restoration.
Poor solubility of anticancer compounds is a common and serious issue that severely complicates the process of bringing new drugs to market and delivering them to patients without unwanted toxicity.
Some of the key functions include binding, flavoring, coloring, lubricating, and enhancing solubility of the drug.
Nevertheless, this protein's applications in foods are limited by its poor solubility.
In addition, the solubility of the residual components has a key role in the stripping process because their initial concentrations will dictate the amount of stripping agent to be used as well as the retention time of the pellets in the devolatilization unit.
