Why does organic compound have low melting point?

They usually are long "chains" of hydrocarbon that only attracted to the weakest intermolecular bonds. Bonds between molecules are generally weaker so they tend to melt faste

Compound with high melting points have what?

Compounds with high melting points have ionic bonds. This is because atoms with ionic bonds show strong attractions to other ions in their vicinity.

Why do inorganic compounds have high melting points?

Inorganic compounds have high melting points because of the ionic bonds they form. Compare this to an organic substance, made up of covalent bonds thus causing a low melting p

Why do most organic compounds have low melting points?

Organic compounds generally are long hydrocarbon chains which are only attracted to each other by Van der Waals bonds which are the weakest intermolecular bonds. Since the bon

How are the melting points of ionic compounds different from molecular compounds?

ionic compounds have high melting points because the have strong intermolecular forces. Molecular compounds boiling point is lower however because they have less strong inte

Why does a molecular compound have a low melting point?

It's because of the properties of a covalent bond.  1. The covalent bond is a compound between two or more non-metals.  Non-metals have low melting points.  2. it tends

Do ionic compounds have a low melting point?

No, they actually have a very high melting point.

Do ionic compounds have high melting points?

All ionic compounds form crystals. So far as I know, there are no exceptions to this. Again, salts like to form crystals because when you have a whole bunch of little electric

Why are melting point ranges of organic compounds so important?

Melting point is important in organic chemistry because it can be used for the identification of a compound. For pure solid organic compounds will have a small melting point

Why do ionic compounds have high melting points?

In ionic compounds, there are strong attractions among the ions; therefore it takes a lot of energy to break those bonds. High melting point depends on bond strength. When tal
