Question

# Which of the following inter-molecular forces are present in ‘nylon – 6,6’?

A
Vander Waals
B
Hydrogen bonding
C
Dipole-dipole interaction
D
None of these

Solution

## The correct option is C Hydrogen bondingVan der Waals forces include attraction and repulsions between atoms, molecules, and surfaces.Hydrogen bonding is a special type of attraction between a hydrogen atom covalently bonded to a very electronegative atom such as  N, O, or F atom and another very electronegative atom.Dipole-dipole interactions occur when the partial charges formed within one molecule are attracted to an opposite partial charge in a nearby molecule.From the picture of Nylon-6,6, we can see there is hydrogen bonding between oxygen and hydrogen atom.Though hydrogen bonds are also one type of dipole-dipole attraction, here, more appropriate answer will be - The intermolecular forces are present in nylon-6,6 are hydrogen bonding.Hence, option $$B$$ is correct.ChemistryNCERTStandard XII
