Highest boiling points

Post by Dhamnekar Winod »

Boiling point and melting point:
The minor difference between the electronegativities of hydrogen and carbon means that the bond between both of them is only weakly polar. If two alkanes having the same molecular weights are there then the highly branched one will have the lower boiling point. The melting point of aliphatic hydrocarbons increases with size but in a less regular manner.

Using above information, arrange the following compounds in ascending order of their boiling points:
1) Petroleum
2) Ponasterone A
3) Ecdysone

What is the answer to this question?
Any science consists of the following process. 1) See 2)Hear 3)Smell,if needed 4)Taste, if needed 5)Think 6)Understand 7)Inference 8)Take decision [Believe or disbelieve, useful or useless, true or false, cause or effect, any other criteria]

Petroleum is a mixture of different carbon hydrates, the boiling points are low.
The other both have realy high values 488 - 640 ° C

Can befind in google
