Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their boiling points: CH3CHO, CH3CH2OH, CH3OCH3, CH3CH2CH3.
The high boiling points of alcohols are mainly due to the presence of intermolecular hydrogen bonding in them which is lacking in ethers and hydrocarbons.
Therefore their incereasing order of boiling point;
CH3CH2CH3 < CH3OCH3 < CH3CHO < CH3CH2OH
ch3cho boiling point
