Many compounds dissolve in water because they can hydrogen bond to water. which of the following cannot hydrogen bond with water?

    To form H bonds with water the compound should have F, O or N atoms. The more electronegative atoms. So is the answer B ?

    I have a doubt with C also, Cuz that is sugar right? So it dissolves in water. .

    I forgot the fact that H bonds help to dissolve !

    The incorrect answer would be B CH3Cl

    dont forget that if there is a hydrogen O-H OR N-H F-H then it can hydrogen bond.

    thing is. the molecule is still polar

    choice B

    so it will still dissovle in water it just cant hydrogen bond i think

    I don't think it dissolves though

    may be sparingly !

    i think it's like dissolves like. that molecule is definitely polar, i may have to check that, hey could you check to see if B would dissolve in water, well at least sparingly @rushwr?

    Thinking about it ! Since it is polar it should dissolve right? So we will go with tht. Anyways it doesn't form H bonds. Maybe they are but very weak !

    there's definitely some kind of interaction going on there

    well it's B :) cause of that Cl and it's organic non-polar covalent that's why I think ??

    I believe that it's B

    But I think that B is polar but it can't H-bond though

    so can be a covalent it's justification ??

    It can't H bond because for H bonding to happen i feel that you'd need a O-H N-h Or F-H one of those bonds
