    Hydrogen bonding

    This is evident when you compare HF to other hydrogen halides. The general trend for hydrogen halides is that their boiling points decrease up the group. However, because HF contains hydrogen bonding, the strong intermolecular force of attraction causes HF to have a much higher boiling point (around 300K) than all the other hydrogen halides which don't have H-bonding (they only have permanent dipole dipole forces due to polar bond).
