    I understand that its because it doesn't allow H+ ions to be split up but I though in all liquids ions split.

    acids dissociate in water giving you the hydroxonium ion (not naked H+). anyway, H3O+ or H+ are ionic species. methylbenzene(toluene) is a non-polar solvent.

    the same reason why NaCl dissolves in polar solvents like water, but remains insoluble in non polar solvents like benzene or methylbenzene (toluene)
