1. What is the most significant reason why HF has a higher boiling point than HCl?

  • Chlorine's larger number of electrons means more shielding of the nucleus therefore more repulsion between atoms in the H-Cl bond
  • HF is more polar so can create stronger permanent dipole-dipole forces
  • HF can form strong hydrogen bonds between molecules, HCl cannot
  • The H-F bond has a higher bond enthalpy than H-Cl
