Is solubility a chemical property or a physical property? The article on solubility mentions that solubility should not be confused with chemical reactions where once substance is chemically "dissolved" by another. Online searching provides websites that state it is a physical change as well as others that state it is a chemical change (and some seem to suggest it depends on the specific situation (sugar dissolving in water is a physical change, where salt is a chemical change because of the formation of ions Delzen 10:05, 8 Mar 2016 (UTC)

"Thermal conductivity", for one, isn't a "chemical property" it's a "property of matter". You can have two different examples of the same chemical with different thermal conductivities (e.g. expandad and non-expanded polystyrene). Andy G 17:47, 19 Aug 2004 (UTC)
