Solution: The table below shows the normal boiling points of benzene and benzene derivatives.Which of these compounds exhibit dipole-dipole interactions?

Problem
The table below shows the normal boiling points of benzene and benzene derivatives.

C6H6, benzene, is a six membered ring with alternating single and double bonds and a normal boiling point of 80 degrees celsius.  C6H5Cl, chlorobenzene, is a benzene ring with a chlorine atom attached to one of the carbons instead of a hydrogen and a normal boiling point of 132 degrees celsius.  C6H5Br, bromobenzene, is a benzene ring with a bromine atom attached to one of the carbons instead of a hydrogen atom and a normal boiling point of 156 degrees celsius.  C6H5OH, called phenol or hydroxybenzene, is a benzene ring with an OH attached to one of the carbons instead of a hydrogen and a normal boiling point of 182 degrees celsius.

Which of these compounds exhibit dipole-dipole interactions?
