Standard Entropy of Vaporization for Mercury

Why is the standard entropy of vaporization for mercury so high considering that it appears stable since it does not participate in hydrogen bonding?

Re: Standard Entropy of Vaporization for Mercury

Mercury has a high entropy of vaporization because there are metallic bonds between the mercury atoms, which make it more organized.
