# How does the boiling point affect polarity?

I think the question should ask $\text{how does polarity affect boiling point?}$
Now this might not be the best example I could draw (and I would welcome suggestions of more apposite molecules), but consider the normal boiling points of chloroform, $61.2$ ""^@C versus that of carbon tetrachloride, $76.2$ ""^@C. The heavier molecule should be and is MORE involatile...but nevertheless, because chloroform has a molecular dipole moment, its boiling is elevated with respect to non-polar carbon tet…
