A Hydrophilic Molecule is the one that can bond with water through Hydrogen bonding. They are soluble in water as well as other polar solvents. Whereas Hydrophobic molecules are the ones that repel from water. It dissolves only in neutral molecules and nonpolar solvents. They are known as Polar molecules and nonpolar molecules, respectively.
