The solubility of a solute in a given solvent follows the rule 'Like dissolves like'. Glucose contains five and sucrose contains eight −OH group. These −OH groups form H-bonds with water. As a result of this extensive intermoleeular H-bonding, glucose and sucrose are soluble in water. on the other hand, benzene and cyclohexane do not contain −OH bonds and hence do not form H-bonds with water. Moreover, they are non-polar molecules and hence do not dissolve in polar water molecules.
