Among Neopentyl chloride and isopentyl chloride, which one have high boiling point?
Asked by ektachhaila | 16th Jan, 2020, 06:41: AM
The boiling point of n-pentyl chloride is higher than its isomeric neopentyl chloride.
The branching of the chain makes the molecule more compact and decreases its surface area.
This decrease the magnitude of the Van der Waal's forces of existing between the two and consequently the boiling point decreases.
