Dipole-dipole interactions

Which type of force is an important force in solutions of ions, allowing ionic substances to dissolve in polar solvents?

Ion-dipole interactions

What type of force is responsible for attracting molecules that have permanent dipoles to each other?

Dipole-dipole interactions

Which type of force increases with the polarity of the molecule, resulting in a higher boiling point?
