Day 13 Pre-class Podia Problem: Conformers and Isomers

The observed boiling points for CCl4 and CHCl3 are:

CCl4 : 77 °C                    CHCl3 : 61 °C

Use your knowledge of intermolecular forces to write an explanation for why CCl4 has a higher boiling point.

Two days before the next whole-class session, this Podia question will become live on Podia, where you can submit your answer.
