why are halogenoalkanes more reactive than alkanes? also why do they have higher boiling points?

2. The polarity makes intermolecular forces stronger.

they are more reactive because as you go down the group reactivity increases i.e. the weaker the bond the lower the activation energy and hence, faster the reaction. R-I>R-Br>R-Cl
hope your Q is answered...
