I am doing some homework just right now, and I encountered this problem. I know that the polarity of the water molecules allows them to be a solvent for a variety of polar species or even species with ionic bonds, but other chemicals dissolve in 25°C water and we know it. (considerable molars of the solute) So something or somethings are responsible for those kind of solutions. I do not need their explanation, only naming them would be enough. I'll do the research myself. But, please avoid technical jargon.
