could you put these in order of polarity please: fluorenone, fluorenol and fluorene. Thanks

  1. In general OH groups are more polar than ketones which are more polar than non-substituted rings.
    Fluorene is a fused system of three rings. Fluorenol has an OH attached to the middle 5 carbon ring. Fluorenone is a ketone at the same position as the OH group in the -ol.
    Go to google.com and search on each of these to see the formulas. I can't draw them on these boards.
