Why carboxylic acids have higher boiling points then alcohols?

Asked by RACHIT NANDA 4th January 2012, 12:00 AM
Answered by Expert
Answer:

Carboxylic acids have higher boiling points then alcohols due to more extensive association of carboxylic acid molecules through intermolecular hydrogen bonding. The hydrogen bonds are not broken completely even in the vapour phase.
