Exposure of plant cell to solvents by decreasing polarity watch

    • Thread Starter

    Okay so I need to come up with a hypothesis for exposure of the plant cell membranes to solvents of decreasing polarity.

    The solvents I am using are; acetone, water, hexane and methanol and I can already tell by their dielectric constant that the solvent that is no polar is hexane.

    I just need help putting this into a hypothesis. Please.

    What do you think *could* happen if you left the plant in hexane as opposed to water? Just take any guess - you could even guess that polarity has no effect. The point isn’t to be correct - if you already knew the answer you wouldn’t have to do the experiment.
