Why does water has a higher boiling point than HF ?
Hydrogen bonding in water and hydrogen fluoride:
Although Fluorine is more electronegative than oxygen But still water has high boiling point than HF due to extensive H- bonding in water than HF. 🤔Reason:Water molecule forms two H-bonds while HF molecule forms One H- bond.
