Does carbon tetrachloride have a high melting point? Why or why not?
The answer is no, and it does not even have a high boiling point..........
The melting point of
For a fairly high molecular mass molecule these values are fairly low. These low physical constants reflect the fact that (i) carbon tetrachloride is molecular; and (ii) there are only weak dispersion forces that operate between molecules. While the individual
Given that it is non-polar molecule, what say you with regard to its solubility in water? These days you won't find it in a teaching lab due to safety concerns.
