  3. Polarity

    Benzyl alcohol is not a good sovent with which to crystallize fluorenol. The melting point looks okay so I'm assuming that polarity is the problem. Benzyl alcohol looks polar to me because it has an OH but it is only partly

    I do not know how to rank the polarity between these, i have also included the boiling point in degrees C but it still does not help. The only thing that i think is that D is the least polar because it is symmetrical, and i think
