3F.5 B

Postby ayushibanerjee06 » Thu Nov 07, 2019 8:05 am

Why does C4H9OH have a higher melting point than C2H5OC2H5? And why does CHI3 have a higher melting point than CHF3?

C4H9OH forms hydrogen bonds with each other b/c of the OH group at the end of the molecule, and thus has a stronger bond between the molecules. CHI3 is more polarizable and thus has a stronger IMF.
