Which is the correct increasing order of boiling points of the following

compounds?

1-Iodobutane, 1-Bromobutane, 1-Chlorobutane, Butane

(i) Butane < 1-Chlorobutane < 1-Bromobutane < 1-Iodobutane

(ii) 1-Iodobutane < 1-Bromobutane < 1-Chlorobutane < Butane

(iii) Butane < 1-Iodobutane < 1-Bromobutane < 1-Chlorobutane

(iv) Butane < 1-Chlorobutane < 1-Iodobutane < 1-Bromobutane

Solution:

Option (i) Butane < 1-Chlorobutane < 1-Bromobutane < 1-Iodobutane is the answer.
