The problem is, we want to see a trend in everything. There are various factors that govern melting point and boiling point which is the reason of perceived anomalies. "The equation which has ...

This is because when these liquids are mixed, H-bonding type interactions are formed between hydrogen atom of chloroform (partial positive charge due to 3 Cl atoms) and 'pi' electron cloud of benzene ...

Yes, it is. In both the cases, the number of ligands remains same, which is according to the definition in Wikipedia. For any type of structural isomerism, the premise is that the primary valence and ...

Down a group, ionic radii increases. But at the same time, due to decrease in charge density, the ions attract less number of water molecules. The smallest cation (with the same charges) having ...

In case of $\ce{[Ni(NH3)6]^2+}$, the configuration is $3\text d^8$. After splitting from spherical to octahedral field, the lower energy orbitals, i.e., $\text t_{2g}$ are already filled. Therefore, ...

Q2) Calculate standard cell potential of the following reaction- $$14\ce{H+}+6\ce{Cl-}+\ce{Cr2O7^2-}\to 3\ce{Cl2}+2\ce{Cr^3+}+7\ce{H2O}$$ Given that $E_{\ce{Cr2O7^2-}|\ce{Cr^3+}}^o=E_1$ and $E_{\ce{Cl-... View answer 2 votes I do not see any reason why the following reaction cannot take place, which will consume$\ce{[B(OH)4]-}$and the concerned reaction will move in forward direction to increase the acidity of ... View answer Accepted answer 2 votes When you are implying reaction quotient, you should use$Q$instead of$K$. As$Q$is defined at any concentrations other than equilibrium. When you are changing$[\ce{A}]$and$[\ce{B}]$,$[\ce{A2B}]...

Take the example of group-12 chlorides $\ce{ZnCl2}$, $\ce{CdCl2}$ and $\ce{HgCl2}$. The ionic radii (VI coordination) increases from $\ce{Zn++}(\pu{0.74~\overset \circ A)}$ to $\ce{Cd++}(\pu{0.95~\... View answer 1 votes Applying Pearson's HSAB concept- Toward hard Lewis bases such as ethyl acetate, the Lewis acidities of the halides of group 13 elements would decrease as the softness of the acceptor element increases:... View answer 1 votes Consider the following assumptions to somehow force these substrates to proceed for$\ce{S_N1}$reaction mechanism: Low temperature Polar protic solvent Low concentration of nucleophile w.r.t. ... View answer 1 votes Yours is a primary alcohol and it has$\beta$hydrogen atoms also. Thus, it will undergo$\pu E2$mechanism. In this mechanism removal of protonated hydroxyl group and$\beta ~\pu H$happen at once (...

Consider the figure given in the previous answer: Due to a lone pair of $\ce{e-}$ and thus, due to lp-bp repulsions, all equatorial fluorine atoms will move upwards but still remain in a plane. Now, ...

(In $\ce{AlCl3}$ the possible backbonding is between $\ce{3p_z-3p_z}$ orbitals but due to large size of orbitals, it is not efficient) Applying Pearson's HSAB concept- Toward hard Lewis bases such as ...

H. C. Brown has suggested that the halogen atom does add but, at high temperatures, is expelled before the second step of free radical addition can occur$^1$. Addition of halogen atom gives this ...

Enthalpy, entropy and Gibbs energy are extensive properties and also state functions. Any difference can also be defined as: Reactants$\ce{->}$Products; $\Delta_r H = \Sigma H_{\text{Products}} - \... View answer -1 votes The ionic radii (VI coordination) increases from$\ce{Zn^2+}(\pu{0.74 Å)}$to$\ce{Cd^2+}(\pu{0.95 Å)}$to$\ce{Hg^2+}(\pu{1.02Å)}$. Applying Fajans' rule, the expected order of covalent character:$\$\...
