What type of intermolecular forces exist in alcohol?

Hydrogen bond form the intermolecular forces in methyl alcohol. That's the reason why methyl alcohol is soluble in water.


Why o-chlorophenol has less dipole moment than o-fluorophenol?

The reason for the larger dipole moment of o-fluorophenol is because F is more electronegative than Cl.


Does CH2O have dipole forces?

CH2O is the formula for formaldehyde, and yes, it does have dipole forces between molecules. The reason is that the O in H2C=O will be partially negative, making the carbon partially positive.


Is amine polar?

Original post: "no.a compound can be considered POLAR when it is SYMMETRICAL and the bond polarity is POLAR COVALENT BOND or IONIC BOND."Revision by another: The answer, "no," is correct, but the answer's explanation is not. The reason NH4+ is classified as nonpolar is because it IS symmetrical. That symmetry is due to their being identical atoms (H) at each of the four points of its molecular tetrahedral geometry, so that all four of the dipole moments extending out from the central atom cancel out perfectly, leaving a net dipole of 0. Zero net molecular dipole = nonpolar molecule.


Is SCl4 polar or non polar?

SCl4 is a polar molecule because when the shape is taken into consideration it is a tetrahedral electron shape, with two lone pairs, making it a trigonal pyramidal. You then know the dipoles do not cancel out because they work together to pull in a direction, not aqgainst each other, and since Cl and S are different electronegativities, they do not cancel out, if it were a F-F type bond electronegativity would cancel out, causing it to be nonplar.

How is water a polar molecule in terms of electronegativity?

Polar molecules have a dipole moment and they have intermolecular forces that include dipole-dipole interaction. A hydrogen bond is the attraction between a hydrogen bonded to N, O, F atom with N, O, F lone pair. Small molecules that exhibit this effect are HF, H2O and NH3. The example molecules are all polar. The hydrogen bond interaction is stronger than a normal dipole-dipole interaction.

Why phenol has lesser dipole moment than alcohol?

As we know that dipole moment of polar molecules is greater than non-polar. In other words, in molecules where charge separation is more, it is more polar and hence having more dipole moment. In phenol, due to resonance, there is positive charge on oxygen. So there is no more charge difference between carbon of ring and oxygen of OH group. This is the reason, it has less dipole moment.

Is CH2Cl2 a dipole?

It does not have dipole-dipole IM forces. The reason for it is that CCl4 is a tetrahedral compound and all of the Cl points away from the central carbon and they are 109.5 degree apart. Therefore they all cancel each other out. The only IM force it has is the london forces.


How do you account for the observed solubility of naphthalene and sodium chloride in water and ether based on the nature of the bonds that exist in them?

The reason why naphthalene can be dissolve in ether and not in water is because of their polarity. Naphthalene is a non-polar molecule. so it can only dissolve with a non-polar molecule.

Is Br2 is an induced dipole moment?

No, Br2 is actually a London dispersion. The reason that Br2 is a dispersion is because dispersion forces are weak forces that result from temporary shifts in the density of electrons in the electron clouds.
