As a general sense I know that cis isomers are less symmetrical and more polar in nature whereas trans isomers are less polar. Now given those information, would it be appropriate to assume that cis isomers are more water soluble owing to their polarity?
Also there was a discussion in our class where my teacher told us that between the cis and trans Butenedioic acids, the cis acid is not water soluble on account of the fact that it undergoes dehydration and the carbonyl groups are bonded by an oxygen atom in between eliminating hydrogen bonds (??).
I would like to know if there is any constant character when it comes to solubility of cis and trans isomers.
