Key notes for class 12 Chemistry chapter 11 Alcohols Phenols and Ethers . it includes revision notes such as Boiling points of alcohols and phenols are higher in comparison to other classes of compounds. This is because the –OH group in alcohols and phenols is involved in intermolecular hydrogen bonding. The boiling points of alcohols and phenols increase with increase in the number of carbon atoms. This is because of increase in van der Waals forces with increase in surface area. In alcohols, the boiling points decrease with increase of branching in carbon chain.
