Examples of Saturated Solution

A saturated solution is broadly defined as a solution in which no more of a substance can be dissolved at room temperature. Additional amounts will form a precipitate, meaning a solid. Chemically, saturation is when the binding sites of a material are fully occupied. In biochemistry, saturation is measured by the proportion of binding sites occupied.

Examples of Saturated Solution:

A sugar solution is said to be saturated when no more sugar can be dissolved in a particular liquid. This is in effect a measurable volume ratio, meaning that solution capacity is defined relative to the volumes of sugar and liquid.

Bromine Water is a solution of bromine and water in which the water is saturated with bromine. This creates a layer of Br liquid at the bottom and a vapour layer on top.
