Why is the boiling point of #H_2Te# higher than the boiling point of #H_2S#?
Well, clearly the degree of intermolecular force is LESS in hydrogen sulfide, than in hydrogen telluride....
There is some little degree of hydrogen-bonding in
On the other hand, while the degree of hydrogen-bonding in
And as chemists, as physical scientists, we should interrogate actual data, and list the normal boiling points, so that we know that we are barking up the right tree...
I think I have written before here that while hydrogen sulfide smells pretty bad, hydrogen selenide and hydrogen telluride smells like a week-old dead dog.
