Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by steff on Monday, December 18, 2006 at 11:19pm.

hi,
I am wondering if benzyl acetate is polar or nonpolar? because it has a non polar benzene ring but also it has the ester bit attached so i am confused.
Also i cant seem to understand the vander waal forces that are in it.

if anybody could help that would be super

A little polar but not much. Here is a good site to compare different polarities.
