Polar solvent:-A solvent in whose molecules there is either a permanent separation of positive and negative charges, or the centers of positive and negative charges do not coincide; these solvents have high dielectric constants, are chemically active, and form coordinate covalent bonds; examples are alcohols and ketones .
Non polar solvent:-A liquid solvent without significant partial charges on any atoms, as in the hydrocarbons, or where the polar bonds are arranged in such a way that the effects of their partial charges cancel out, as in carbon tetrachloride. Liquid hydrocarbons are the most common examples.
