Is Benzil polar or non polar?
► Exposure to Benzoic Acid in high concentrations, particularly in susceptible individuals, may cause a skin allergy. No occupational exposure limits have been established for Benzoic Acid. However, it may pose a health risk.
Benzil (i.e. Bz2, systematically known as 1,2-diphenylethane-1,2-dione) is the organic compound with the formula (C6H5CO)2, generally abbreviated (PhCO)2. This yellow solid is one of the most common diketones. Its main use is as a photoinitiator in polymer chemistry.
Why is Benzil not soluble in water? Water is very polar and therefore absorbs very strongly on the polar stationary phase (alumina). Since benzil is less polar than benzoin, a polar solvent is used as solvent for the recrystallization.

Is Benzil soluble in polar or nonpolar solvents?
Trans Benzil is Non Polar because dipole moment cancels because two same groups are on opposite side of C——-C bond. Cis Benzil is polar because dipole moment does not cancels in this case because same groups are on same sides of C——C bond hence there is net dipole moment.
