Forces between what? Chloroform or chlorofrom-water os somthing else?
Chlorofrm neverthe less in quite polar?
Ok, but why is low polar?(it has three very polar bonds). Perhaps in chloroform bond dipoles in some percent cancell each other out,
but C-Cl bond always contribute to more hydrophobic carracter of molecules, why?
Ok, then I have som other question now. Why does not chloroform form hydrogen bonds, it has comparable electronegativity with oxygen?

Why does not chloroform form hydrogen bonds, it has comparable electronegativity with oxygen?I don't think electronegativity is a good measure of the relative polarity. HCl is a moch stronger acid than water. Hence I might conclude chloride ion forms weaker hydrogen bonds than water. If so, then I might expect chloroform to form very weak hydrogen bonds, if any. Therefore, hydrogen bonding will not increase solubility.
