Boiling point, urgent ! Which of the following has higher boiling point? 1) Mixture of hexane and propanone 2) propapone (consider their relative molecular mass and the forces of attraction between the molecules) I think the mixture of hexane and propanone has a higher boiling point, as propanone has lone pair electrons, therefore the force between the molecules in the mixture is dipole-induced dipole, while the force exists between pure propanone molecules is instantaneous diple-induced dipole. However my classmate told me the mixture has a lower boiling point and was confirmed by my teacher. I hope I can get your answer in 3 to 4 hours, if not, it's ok and I'll treat this thread as a discussion. Thanks in advance. PS. This question is for the theory part of my lab. report. Since the data obtained was ridiculous, that's why I need to know the fact. PS2. I need to finish it in 4.5 hours.
