Compounds with strong intermolecular forces have high boiling points. This is because they require more energy to be able to break the bonds during the phase transition.
Ranking the IMF:
Ion-dipole interaction > Hydrogen bonding > Dipole-dipole interaction > Dispersion forces
Rank these compounds by their expected boiling point.
