WHAT DOES HYDROPHILICITY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Hydrophile

A hydrophile is a molecule or other molecular entity that is attracted to, and tends to be dissolved by, water. A hydrophilic molecule or portion of a molecule is one that has a tendency to interact with or be dissolved by water and other polar substances. Hydrophilic substances can seem to attract water out of the air. Sugar, too, is hydrophilic, and like salt is sometimes used to draw water out of foods. This is thermodynamically favorable, and makes these molecules soluble not only in water but also in other polar solvents. There are hydrophilic and hydrophobic parts of the cell membrane. A hydrophilic molecule or portion of a molecule is one that is typically charge-polarized and capable of hydrogen bonding, enabling it to dissolve more readily in water than in oil or other hydrophobic solvents. Hydrophilic and hydrophobic molecules are also known as polar molecules and nonpolar molecules, respectively. Some hydrophilic substances do not dissolve. This type of mixture is called a colloid. Soap, which is amphipathic, has a hydrophilic head and a hydrophobic tail, allowing it to dissolve in both water and oil.

Definition of hydrophilicity in the English dictionary
