Among CH3OH, CH4, CF4, CO2 and CH3F, which has the highest dipole moment?

CH4, CF4 (both tetrahedral), and CO2 (linear) are symmetrical molecules. Their dipole moment is zero. Since fluorine is more electronegative than oxygen, the dipole moment of CH3F is higher that of CH3OH. Thus, among CH3OH, CH4 CO2 and CH3F, CH3F has the largest dipole moment.
