Solution: Identify which of the following molecules can exhibit hydrogen bonding as a pure liquid.

Problem

Identify which of the following molecules can exhibit hydrogen bonding as a pure liquid.

Solution

We have to find out which of the given molecules can exhibit hydrogen bonding.

Hydrogen bonding is a strong intermolecular force which a hydrogen atom is attached to a highly electronegative atom.

Hydrogen bonding is only possible when hydrogen atom is attached to FON.

This means hydrogen bonding will only be seen in compounds where there are H–F, H–O and H–N covalent bonds.
