Abstract : A method for quantitative estimation of the contributions of dispersion, induction, and orientation energies to cohesion in polar organic liquids is proposed and illustrated with the methyl n-alkyl ketones. Dispersion always predominates, with induction in a minor, but constant role. Orientation rapidly loses significance as the hydrocarbon side chain is increased. Induction energy is more important than is generally appreciated, contributing 5-10% to the total cohesion of the higher, 'mostly non-polar' 2 ketones. (Author)
