'I never did see such a addle-headed old creetur!' exclaimed Sam irritably; 'Old Baileys, and Solvent Courts, and alleybis, and ev'ry species o' gammon alvays a-runnin' through his brain.
A portion of the stone will I grind to impalpable powder; other parts shall be dissolved in acids, or whatever solvents will act upon so admirable a composition; and the remainder I design to melt in the crucible, or set on fire with the blow-pipe.
Then now, I said, you will understand what our object was in selecting our soldiers, and educating them in music and gymnastic; we were contriving influences which would prepare them to take the dye of the laws in perfection, and the colour of their opinion about dangers and of every other opinion was to be indelibly fixed by their nurture and training, not to be washed away by such potent lyes as pleasure-- mightier agent far in washing the soul than any soda or lye; or by sorrow, fear, and desire, the mightiest of all other solvents. And this sort of universal saving power of true opinion in conformity with law about real and false dangers I call and maintain to be courage, unless you disagree.

Some polymers dissolve in a solvent readily, others requiring prolong period of heating and network polymer do not dissolve.
With exposure to solvents, people who also carry genes that make them more susceptible to developing multiple sclerosis are nearly seven times as likely to develop the disease as compared to those with no solvent exposure who do not carry the MS genes, said the study published in the journal Neurology.
People with exposure to solvents who also carry the genes that make them more susceptible to MS are nearly seven times more likely to develop the disease as people with no solvent exposure who do not carry the MS genes.

To reconfirm each strain's stability in solvent, bacteria were inoculated into protease production media and crude enzyme was mixed with toluene and benzene, followed by evaluation of protease activity.
Gel-spun UHMWPE (ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene) fiber exhibits remarkable tensile properties [1, 2]; however, the relatively complex processing involved in its production leads to costs almost ten times more than conventional meltspun fiber [3, 4], Commercial UHMWPE gel-spinning processes are inherently inefficient, requiring spin-solvent concentrations in excess of 80% [5], Efficient extraction of large volumes of spin solvent is a major limiting factor using conventional techniques since the rate of spin-solvent extraction is generally limited by diffusion related variables such as concentration gradient, fiber diameter, and temperature.
Solvent swelling is a simple and useful technique for determining the solubility parameters of cross-linked polymers, for characterizing solvent-polymer interactions, or, using suitable theoretical models, for calculating cross-link densities and molecular weights between cross-links of polymeric networks [1-3].
The name for the process is a misnomer as the cleaning is actually achieved by solvent vapour condensing on the cooler target parts the hot liquid solvent dissolving oil and removing dirt.
Literature on solvent resistances should only be used as guidelines and estimates.
