Short Note

Give reason. Though alkyl halides are moderately polar, they are insoluble in water.

Solution

  1. Alkyl halides cannot form hydrogen bonds with water.
  2. In addition to this, the attraction between alkyl halide molecules is stronger than the attraction between alkyl halide and water.
  3. Hence, alkyl halides though moderately polar are insoluble with water.
