If we will analyze the molecule, CH3OCH3 appears to have an electronegative atom O which is capable of interacting with positive species
In this case, H2O has Hs on it which are partially positive due to the O which pulls the electron away from H
What is the strongest type of intermolecular force between solute and solvent in the following solution?
CH3OCH3(g) in H2O(l)
b) H bond
d) ion-induced dipole
e) dipole-induced dipole
