The boiling points of monohalo benzene which are all liquids follow the order
Iodo > Bromo > Chloro
The boiling points of isomeric dihalobenzene are nearly the same
The melting point of para isomer is generally higher than the melting points of ortho and meta isomers. The higher melting point of p-isomer is due to its symmetry which leads to more close packing of its molecules in the crystal lattice and consequently strong intermolecular attractive force which requires more energy for melting
p –Dihalo benzene > o- Dichloro benzene > m-Dichloro benzene
Haloarenes are insoluble in water because they cannot form hydrogen bonds with water ,but are soluble in organic solvents
Halo arenes are all heavier than water and their densities follow the order.
Iodo benzene > Bromo benzene > Chloro benzene
