Which of the following is false?
  • A
    Glycerol has strong hydrogen bonding
  • B
    Alkyl halides have higher b.p. than corresponding alcohols
  • C
    Glycol is a poisonous alcohols
  • D
    Waxes are esters of higher alcohols with higher acids

Solution

  • Alcohols have inter-molecular Hydrogen bonding between the molecules. 
  • Whereas, Alkyl halides are held together by London forces which are weaker forces than Hydrogen bonding.
  • Due to this reason Alcohols have higher Boiling points than Alkyl halides.
  • Hence, option B is correct answer.
