Some weeks ago one of my friend needed to use turpentine. As a good but ignorant chemist on that point I did some research about it. I found (at the beginning) in the French wikipedia page of turpentine :
"L'essence de térébenthine est un mélange de molécules variées, comprenant en particulier des terpéniques, des acides et des alcools. Ce liquide est insoluble dans l'eau, dans l'alcool absolu et dans l'éther, cependant il est légèrement soluble dans un mélange eau-alcool."
Which translated in English gives,
"Turpentine is a mixture of different molecules, particularly terpenes, acids, and alcohols. This liquid is insoluble in water, absolute alcohol, and ether, but it is slightly soluble in a mixture of water-alcohol."
I found no reference about that. Is it really possible? It sounds particularly strange to me. And obviously if that is possible, how?
