2. amines with fewer than 5 carbons are

  • soluble in water
  • insoluble in water

3. larger amines (>5 Carbons) are not soluble in water due to

  • decreased chain length- more vdw forces present
  • increased chain length- vdw forces too weak to separate h20 molecules
  • carbons repel the water molecules
  • size- too big to be dissolved

4. why do amines have lower boiling points than alcohols?

  • due to their size
  • N-H bond less polar than O-H bond
  • N-H bond more polar than O-H bond
  • functional group is hydrophobic

5. in amines, the N is attached to one or more

  • H20 molecules
  • carbon containg groups
  • OH groups
