Problem 6P

Problem 6P

For each pair of compounds, predict which compound has the higher boiling point. CheckTable 6-2 to see if your prediction was right, then explain why that compound has the higherboiling point.

(a) isopropyl bromide and n-butyl bromide

(b) isopropyl chloride and tert-butyl bromide

(c) 1-bromobutane and 1-chlorobutane

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Answer :

(a) isopropyl bromide and n-butyl bromide

N-butyl bromide (1-bromo butane ) has a higher molecular weight and less branching ,and boils at high temperature than iso propyl bromide .

(b) isopropyl chloride and tert-butyl bromide

 tert-butyl bromide has a high molecular weight and a larger halogen ,and despite its greater branching,boils at higher temperature than iso propyl chloride .

Image result for 1 chlorobutane

1 - bromo butane has higher molecular weight and a larger halogen ,and boils at a higher temperature than 1-chlorobutane
