Electrochemistry Dictionary
"The maximum amount of a species that can be dissolved in a given solvent. It is usually expressed as the maximum achievable concentration. A solution is called ""saturated"" if it contains the maximum dissolvable amount. "
General Chemistry Glossary
The solubility of a substance is its concentration in a saturated solution . Substances with solubilities much less than 1 g/100 mL of solvent are usually considered insoluble. The solubility is sometimes called "equilibrium solubility" because the rates at which solute dissolves and is deposited out of solution are equal at this concentration.
Solubility Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Solubility is the property of a solid, liquid, or gaseous chemical substance called solute to dissolve in a solid, liquid, or gaseous solvent to form a homogeneous solution of the solute in the solvent. The solubility of a substance fundamentally depends on the physical and chemical properties of the solute and solvent as well as on temperature, pressure and the pH of the solution. The extent of the solubility of a substance in a specific solvent is measured as the saturation concentration, where adding more solute does not increase the concentration of the solution and begin to precipitate the excess amount of solute.
