An oil is any nonpolar chemical substance that is a viscous liquid at ambient temperatures and is both hydrophobic (immiscible with water, literally "water fearing") and lipophilic (miscible with other oils, literally "fat loving"). Oils have a high carbon and hydrogen content and are usually flammable and surface active.

Polymers/Resins

When identical simple molecules (monomers) come together and link up in a chain-like fashion, they form a polymer. The chemical reaction that forms a polymer is called polymerization. There are natural polymers (often referred to as biopolymers), such as cellulose, rubber and DNA, and synthetic polymers, such as polyethylene, nylon and PVC. Most resins are polymers.

Surfactants
Surfactants

Short for surface-active agent, surfactants are used to describe a chemical that will reduce the surface tension of water when it is added to it. This enables the water to mix with materials it would otherwise not dissolve, such as grease. There are three categories: detergents, wetting agents and emulsifiers; all use the same basic chemical mechanism and differ in the nature of the surfaces involved.
