|Name||Projection Formula||Type of Compound||Boiling Point in degrees C|
|Methyl ethyl ether||Ether||10.8|
|Acetic Acid||Carboxylic acid||117.9|
|Ethylene Glycol||Dialcohohl (two OH groups)||198|
This table shows the boiling points of organic compounds of similar size. This, then, provides a good means of comparing intermolecular forces of different structure types. In general, decreasing branching, increasing polarity, and increasing hydrogen bonding opportunities increases the boiling point. This makes sense, as all three of these contribute to increase intermolecular forces.
