According do J.D. Lee's Concise Inorganic Chemistry, LiCl is soluble in alcohols because it has some covalent nature, althought it is mainly polar.
Why would LiCl have covalent character? Why doesn't this happen to NaCl?
Also, is this explanation true? A friend of mine said this solubility was because of the polar nature of small alcohols. Which of them is right?
