Question
2 out of 8
 

In terms of boiling point, ethers most resemble which of the following types of compounds?

A alcohols
B water
C carboxylic acids
D alkanes
Ans. D Alcohols, water, and carboxylic acids can undergo intermolecular hydrogen bonding. Ethers cannot undergo intermolecular hydrogen bonding. Alkanes cannot form intermolecular hydrogen bonding either. So the best conclusion is that ethers have boiling points similar to that of alkanes.
