Why do different isomers have a different enthalpy of combustion?

Post by Martin » Thu Mar 09, 2017 10:34 am

I did an experiment in class and found that different isomers gave me different enthalpies of combustion. Why is this? I used Butan-1-ol, Butan-2-ol, 2-methylpropan-1-ol and 2-Methylpropan-2-ol.

Thanks.
