Problem 34SP

Predict which member of each pair has the higher boiling point, and explain the reasons for your predictions.

(a) hexan-1-ol or 3,3-dimethylbutan-1-ol

(b) hexan-2-one or hexan-2-ol

(c) hexan-2-ol or hexane-1,5-diol

(d) pentan-2-ol or hexan-2-ol

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 34SP:

Here, we are going to predict which member of each pair has the higher boiling point, with reason.

Boiling point of alcohol depends on the following factors.

Molecular weightHydrogen bondingDipole-dipole attraction

(a) hexan-1-ol or 3,3-dimethylbutan-1-ol

Step 1: The structure of the compounds are as follows:

Here, hexan-1-ol has the higher boiling point than 3,3-dimethylbutan-1-ol. This is because, hexan-1-ol is less branched than 3,3-dimethylbutan-1-ol.

(b) hexan-2-one or hexan-2-ol

Step 2: The structure of the compounds are as follows:

Here,  hexan-2-ol has the higher boiling point than hexan-2-one. This is because, hexan-2-ol can form hydrogen bonding with a pair of nonbonding electrons from the oxygen atom of another alcohol molecule, whereas hexan-2-one have two alkyl groups bonded to their oxygen atoms, so they have no O¬H hydrogen atoms to form hydrogen bonding.

(c) hexan-2-ol or hexane-1,5-diol
