Homework Help: Hydrogen compounds and states of matter

  1. May 6, 2007 #1
    Chemical properties of hydrogen compounds can have vast differences depending on the state of matter that the substance is in - solid, liquid or gas. The difference in chemical properties is related to

    the dissociation of H+ from the hydrogen compound into solution.

    the dissociation of OH- from the hydrogen compound into solution.

    the energy threshold required to break the covalent bonds in the solid.

    the slight cohesion of the liquid solvent forming the aqueous solution.

    I think the answer is D - it has nothing to do with hydrogen bonding...but im not sure at all.

    "Phase behavior" is a function of the compound's "colligative properties;" so, yes, "D."
