Based on your knowledge of boiling point trends in alkanes, predict which compound has the higher boiling point, butane or 2-methylpropane (isobutane). Based on your knowledge of boiling point trends in alkanes, predict which compound has the higher boiling point, butane or 2-methylpropane (isobutane). a. isobutane would have a higher boiling point, since the greater the surface area, the higher the boiling point. b. Butane would have a higher boiling point, since the greater the surface area, the higher the boiling point. c. Butane would have a higher boiling point, since the smaller the surface area, the higher the boiling point. d. Isobutane would have a higher boiling point, since the smaller the surface area, the higher the boiling point.
