Non-polar solvent

Solvents are used to dissolve a solute, forming a solution. Generally they are in a liquid form.

If the solvent is non-polar then the electrons are shared evenly between the bonded atoms, so there are no significant charges on the atoms. Alternatively, polar bonds can cancel out the effects of one another giving a non-polar solvent.
