The key to understanding physical properties of alcohol, including hydrogen bonding solubility and boiling point is to understand the structure and charge distribution within the alcohol functional group.
This video will show you the behind-the-scenes intermolecular forces at work that affect alcohol’s ability to hydrogen bond for solubility in water, miscibility, and boiling point trends.
You’ll also see how alcohol chain length and branching impact these properties.
