chapter 2 inorganic chemistry

organic molecules they contain carbon-carbon covalent bonds or carbon-hydrogen covalent bonds. Inorganic do not. inorganic molecules water and some acids, bases, and salts water solvent (liquid into which solutes are dissolved) dehydration synthesis chemical reaction in which water is removed from small molecules so they can be strung together to Read more…

Inorganic chemistry

Group 7: boiling points Increases down group- vdwfs increases due to increase in size and increase in Relative atomic mass. Group 7: electronegativity Decreases down group due to increase in shielding Group 7: displacements – oxidising strength decreases down ground cos of electron increase – electrons with smaller radius Periodicity: Read more…

Inorganic Chemistry: Coordination Chemistry

Crystal Field Theory Designed for coordination compounds: Ligands+ Metal ion (+charge) Orbital Energy Determined by ligand number, compound structure, and electric field strength of ligands Nucleophilicity order of ligands 1. Across a row: C⁻>N⁻>O⁻>F⁻ since increasing electronegativity decreases the lone pair availability. 2. Comparing same atom: higher electron density increases Read more…
