The strongest intermolecular interactions between ethyl alcohol (CH3CH2OH) molecules arise from
A. dipole-dipole forces.
B. London dispersion forces.
C. hydrogen bonding.
D. ion-dipole interactions.
E. carbon-oxygen bonds.

Answer

hydrogen bonding
the OH in ethanol produces a hydrogen bond. hydrogen bonds occur when H is bonded to either O,F, and N atoms. and is one of the strongest types of intermolecular forces.
