Solution

1. Aqueous solution: The solution in which water acts as a solvent is called an aqueous solution. (e.g. sugar solution).

2. Non-aqueous solution: The solution in which any liquid other than water acts as a solvent is called non-aqueous solution. A solution of sulphur in carbon disulphide is a suitable example for a non-aqueous solution. Benzene, ether, carbon disulphide(CS2), acetone are a few examples of non-aqueous solvents which are used to dissolve organic compounds.
