Unit 2 Application of Core Principles of Chemistry - 2.5 - Intermolecular forces

Students will be assessed on their ability to:

a) demonstrate an understanding of the nature of intermolecular forces resulting from interactions between permanent dipoles, instantaneous dipoles and induced dipoles (London forces) and from the formation of hydrogen bonds

b) relate the physical properties of materials to the types of intermolecular force present, eg:

c) carry out experiments to study the solubility of simple molecules in different solvents

d) interpret given information about solvents and solubility to explain the choice of solvents in given contexts, discussing the factors that determine the solubility including:
