Dipole-dipole interactions

Work Step by Step

From the beginning, we see that the molecule is very polar, leading to dipole-dipole interactions. Chlorine is very electronegative, so it is tempting to say that there is hydrogen bonding here. However, chlorine is not electronegative enough for hydrogen bonding to occur, so dipole-dipole is the correct answer.
