Unformatted text preview: anyway) cancel out since the molecule is symmetrical. • CH 3 OCH 3 is a dipole because the C-O bonds are polar and are not symmetrical around the O atom, but this molecule does not have any hydrogen bonds like CH 3 OH, which makes CH 3 OH a stronger dipole than CH 3 OCH 3 . • CCl 4 is a non-polar molecule because it is also is symmetrical, so even though the C-Cl bonds are very polar, the bond polarities cancel out due to symmetry, BUT it is a larger molecule than CH 4 (which has similar properties), and therefore CCl 4 would have a higher boiling point than CH 4 .
