Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Sara on Monday, December 6, 2010 at 10:46am.

Diethyl ether has a boiling point of 34.5C, and 1-butanol has a boiling point of 117C. Both of these compounds have the same numbers and types of atoms. Explain the difference in their boiling points.

The answer I found was that: only 1-butanol can form hydrogen bonds.

But I still don't get why that's the answer.
