It's been a while with my encounter with chemical potential. Now that I am studying a research paper, it somehow implies that the chemical potential of a solute under saturated solution (standard T, and P) remains same irrespective of what solvent is being used. Could someone please give some insights regarding this?

  • $\begingroup$ @lemon No it is not. Where did you ever get that idea. $\endgroup$ – Chester Miller Apr 2 '18 at 11:55
  • $\begingroup$ At saturation, adding more solute results in precipitation into a solid. Now the solute is in equilibrium with the solid. What does that tell you? $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer Apr 2 '18 at 13:33
