Primary amines have a higher boiling point then tertiary amines .justify the statement

Primary amines have higher Hydrogen bonding than tertiary amines due to the steric hinderance of the bulky alkyl group

Amines have a greater tendency to form hydrogen bonding due to the presence of hydrogen and electronegative N atom. The intermolecular bonding increases and will require more energy to break the bonds

Mostly in primary amines two hydrogens are present that forms hydrogen bond compared to tertiary amine hence it has a higher boiling point
