Alcohols and ethers: summary

HideShow resource information
  • Ethers can be named using IUPAC rules
  • Hydrogen bonding between alcohol molecules and lack hydrogen bonding between ether molecules explains why alcohols have higher boiling points than isomeric ethers and other organic molecules of similar relative molecular mass
  • Hydrogen bonding between alcohol molecules and water, and between ether molecules and water, explains why ethers and alcohols of similar relative molecular mass have similar solubilities in water
