Physical Properties of Nitro Compounds and Properties

Physical Properties of Nitro Compounds and Properties

  • These are colourless pleasent smelling liquid.
  • Nitrobenzene is yellow coloured liquids which smells like bitter almonds.
  • Nitroalkane and nitrobenzene both have high dipole moment (3 to 4D). Therefore their boiling points is higher than hydrocarbon.

Physical Properties of Nitro Compounds and Properties

→ Solubility : Nitroalkanes are less soluble in water and insoluble in nitroarenes. Both are soluble in organic solvents.

→ Stability : Nitroalkanes are more stable.
