Is c6h12o6 polar or nonpolar
NH2CH2COOH is glycine (amino acid) -polar C6H12O6 is glucose-nonpolar CH4 is methane-nonpolar NH3 is ammonia-polar Is sugar a polar or nonpolar substance? Water (H 2 O) is an example of a polar molecule since it has a slight positive charge on one side and a slight negative charge on the other.Polar or Nonpolar is a bit tough. For big molecules like this, it is easier to think in terms of "liking water" or "hating water" (hydrophillic or hydrophobic). Oleic acid is hydrophobic, and would be considered Nonpolar. However, Oleic Acid (like most fatty acids) contains 2 sections. One section is a long C-H chain that is entirely nonpolar.
