What is the predominant intermolecular force in the liquid state of each of these compounds: hydrogen fluoride (HF), carbon tetrachloride (CCl4), and dichloromethane (CH2Cl2)? Either Dipole-dipole forces, Hydrogen bonding or Dispersion forces
Whereas dipole-dipole interaction operates for
And how do we get a handle on intermolecular force? Well, the best metric are the normal boiling points........
The heavy, many electron, carbon tet molecule is the most involatile material, even tho' hydrogen bonding clearly operates for
