Using structural formulas, describe the hydrogen bonding between methanol (CH3OH) molecules. What physical properties of methanol are affected by hydrogen bonding?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Describe hydrogen bonding in methanol and also state which physical properties are affected by hydrogen bonding.

Concept Introduction:

A hydrogen bonding is partially an electrostatic attraction between H atom which is bonded to more electronegative atom such as N, O, orF and another adjacent atom bearing a lone pair of electron.

Hydrogen bonding is the intermolecular force in which a hydrogen atom that is bonded to a highly electronegative atom is attracted to an unshared pair of electrons of an electronegative atom in a nearby molecule.
