Can diethyl ether hydrogen bond?

Yes, it can. Hydrogen bonding is an intermolecular force, that is, it occurs between molecules and is specific to Hydrogen and either Fluorine, Oxygen or Nitrogen. The molecular formula of diethyl ether is C2H5-O-H5C2. The Oxygen in the middle of the molecule is likely to form bonds with Hydrogen from other diethyl ether molecules, and hence, diethyl ether can form hydrogen bonds.

Why ethanol has a higher boiling point than diethyl ether?

Ethanol has an -OH group which can involve in hydrogen bonding and diethyl ether molecules haven't such groups.

Why ethanol has higher boiling point than diethylether?

The boiling point of ethyl alcohal(Ethanol) is due to hydrogen bonding present in diethyl ether,no hydrogen atom is linked with any electronegetive element and hydrogen bonding does not exist.

Why does Diethyl ether and water not mix?

Diethyl ether cannot participate in hydrogen bonding with water. It also has nonpolar side chains which are not attracted to the polar molecule water. Diethyl ether is soluble with water to some extent (6.9g/100mL) but is not miscible.

Why is diethyl ether a common solvent?

Because it's very good at dissolving things. Diethyl ether is polar. The center has a slight negative charge while the arms have a slight positive charge. Also hydrogen bonding can occur with the oxygen on diethyl ether.

Why ethanol has high boiling point than diethyl-ether?

Ethanol has intermolecular hydrogen bonding where as diethylether does not have this kind of bonding. So BP of ethanol is higher than diethylether.

How many hydrogen atoms are in 14.8 g of C2H52O?

There are ten hydrogen atoms in 14.8g of C2H520(Diethyl Ether).

Why ethanol has higher boiling point than diethyl ether?

Ethanol has hydrogen bond where as ether does not.

What types of electronic transition are possible for acetaldehyde and diethyl ether?


Is diethyl in antifreeze?

Yes diethyl can be found in antifreeze. Diethyl is also found in paint removers. Diethyl is also known as ether.

Is diethyl ether has higher boiling point than butyl alcohol?

Other way around. The stronger the intermolecular forces, the less easily molecules freely fly around, so the less easily they will boil. Hydrogen bonding is stronger than dipole-dipole interactions.

Why ethyl alcohol has greater viscosity than diethyl alcohol?

Diethyl alcohol does not exsist.Viscosity ofDiethyl ether, which is ethoxyethane (C2H5OC2H5), is 0.224 cP at 25°CEthyl alcohol, which is hydroxyethane (C2H5OH), is 1.074 cP at 25°CThe 2nd being greater because of more intermolecular hydrogen bonds.

The reaction of diethyl maleate with iodine?

Is Ibuprofen soluble in diethyl ether?

ibuprofen is soluble in diethyl ether

What is the density of diethyl ether?

Diethyl ether is more commonly known as just ether. The density of diethyl ether is 0.7134 grams per cubic centimeter.

What is diethyl ether's solubility in hexane?

Diethyl ether does not dissove in ether at room temperature

Is ethyl acetate or diethyl ether is same?

No.. Ethyl acetate is C2H5COOCH3 and Diethyl ether is C2H5OC2H5

Is diethyl ether a polar molecule?

All ethers are polar molecules. They are less polar than an equivalent alcohol or ester, but the lone electrons on the oxygen atoms makes polar bonding likely.

Is benzophenol soluble in diethyl ether?

If it is in it's neural state than yes diethyl-ether will dissolve it.

What are the intermolecular forces in diethyl ether?

So, it all depends on the solvent that we are dissolving are organic solvent in. Let's pick the most common solvent, water. In this case you would have van der Waals forces (London force, dipole-induced dipole, and dipole dipole), and hydrogen bonding. I would elaborate but I am writing my lab report at the moment. Hope this helps.

How do you get diethyl ether?

Diethyl ether can be formed from alcohol by intermolecular dehydration of alcohols. When alcohol is heated with conc. H2SO4 at 140*C, diethyl ether is obtained. CH3CH2OH + H2SO4 -----------> CH3CH2OCH2CH3 ( diethyl ether) It must be noted that at high temp (180*C) the reaction is elimination which form alkene.

Difference between petroleum ether and diethyl ether?

Ether generally refers to diethyl ether, when not modified by any other words. Petroleum ether is not actually an ether. Instead, it is a mix of hydrocarbons, which is also referred to as 'hexanes', not to be confused with the compound, hexane.

Is diethyl ether soluble in hexane?


Is diethyl benzene aromatic?
