Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jesse on Thursday, March 3, 2011 at 4:37pm.

I have a simple question: why does mgcl2 have a higher boiling point than ncl3??

I thought mgcl2 in terms of intermolecular forces had just dispersions and because ncl3 had dispersions and dipole dipole ( cause it's polar) had a higher IMF therefore a higher boiling point??

Please help thnx
