Properties of alcohols
- they can form dipoles and hydrogen bonds with each other
- they have higher boiling points than alkanes because they make hydrogen bonds which require large amount of energy to break the bonds and therefore increasing the boiling points.
- Solubility decreases as the chain lenght increases because there are less hydrogen bonds per carbon atom.
- the viscousity of alcohols increases as their chain lenght increases beacause the intermolecular bonds in them…
