Problem

What is the strongest type of intermolecular force between solute and solvent in the following solution?

CH3OCH3(g) in H2O(l)

a) ion-dipole

b) H bond

c) dipole-dipole

d) ion-induced dipole

e) dipole-induced dipole

f) dispersion

Solution
  • If we will analyze the molecule, CH3OCHappears to have an electronegative atom O which is capable of interacting with positive species

  • In this case, H2has Hs on it which are partially positive due to the O which pulls the electron away from H
