Solvent

sol•vent

\ˈsäl-vənt\

noun

A substance that dissolves a solute (a liquid, gas, or solid that is chemically different) and creates a solution. Solvents are normally liquids but can also be gases or solids. Typically, solvents are quite volatile, and it is important to take precautions when using them. In painting terms, a solvent evaporates during the drying process.

The painter carefully stored the product because he knew he was dealing with a potentially volatile solvent.
