Identify the type of interactions in each compound (ionic, dipole -dipole, hydrogen bond, etc...)

d. CH3OH

e. VO


Expert Answer

Step 1

The ionic interactions are electrostatic attraction between a positive and a negative ion. It occurs when a compound has ionic bond.

Polar molecules contain polar bonds that form dipoles. The dipole forces are attractive forces between two permanent dipoles.

The forces that occur as a result of attractions due to temporary dipoles between are known as dispersion forces.

The hydrogen bond is created when the electronegative atom, such as oxygen, nitrogen are bonded to the hydrogen atom.

Step 2

Methanol, CH3OH is a polar compound. So, there will be dipole-dipole forces and dispersion forces. Also, in methanol an electronegative oxygen atom is directly bonded to the hydrogen atom (hydroxyl group), so there will be hydrogen bonding. Therefore, in the case of methanol, hydrogen bonding is present with dipole-dipole forces and dispersion forces.
