5.13 Draw a structural formula for each alcohol OH HO OH OH HO OH HO OH Cl OH a. isobutyl alcohol b. 1,4-butanediol c. 5-methyl-1-hexanol d. 1,3-pentanediol e. trans -1,4-cyclohexanediol f. 1-chloro-2-propanol 5.16 Explain in terms of noncovalent interactions why the low-molecular weight alcohols are soluble in water but the low-molecular weight alkanes and alkynes are not. Both the C-O and O-H bonds are alcohols are polar. Water will dissolve polar liquids. In this case, the partial positive charges on C (in the C-O bond) and H (in the O-H bond), and the partial negative change on oxygen allow alcohols to interact with water via hydrogen bonds. Low molecular weight alkanes and alkynes are completely nonpolar. Water, a polar liquid, will not
