To determine the covalent character of a compound we us FAJANS rule.


The main points are:


1.)The size of anion should be larger


2.)The size of cation must be smaller


3.)The order of charges in both the cation as well as the anion must be larger.


4.)Pseudo configuratons(the one with incomplete octet but complete orbitals eg.Berryllium-it is not having complete octet but its last orbital i.e S is completely filled.)are to be considered as having more covalent character Noble(eg Neon gases.


 


On the basis of the above theroy you can predict the answers.

I in case of CF3I has a partial charge of +1 and in case of CH3I has a partial charge of -1. Why? I know it is related to electronegativity but please explain!
 
 
IN case of CF3I it dissociates as CF3- and I+ the charge on iodine is +1 whereas CH3I dissociates as CH3+ and I- the charge in case of I- is -1.see as the electronegativity of flourine is...
