Why alcohols are miscible with water?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 26th Mar, 2014, 09:54: AM
The solubility of alcohols in water is due to the association of alcohol molecules with water molecules by hydrogen bonding.The hydrogen atom of alcohol molecule gets attracted by the electronegative oxygen atom of water molecule , in the same way the hydrogen atom of water molecule is attracted by the oxygen atom of alcohol molecule.
