hydrogen has three isotopes: Protium ( 1 proton) , Deuterium ( 1 proton and 1 neutron), and tritium (1 proton and 2 neutrons).


 


which of these isotopes is most electronegative and why?

Dear Janani,


Protium would have the highest electronegativity value followed by Deutrium & then finally tritium ..


The electronegativity decreases in the order..


       Protium(1H1)>Deutrium(1H2)>Tritium(1H3)


 


This is because electronegativity is the tendency to attract the shared pair of electrons towards a particular atom..Now for Protium(1H1) it has one proton(+ve charged) & so it could attract the electrons effectively towards itself but in deutrium there is an added neutral charge in the form of a neutron which increases the size thus reduces the electronegativity tendency of the deutrium atom & similarly for tritium..!!


 


If you still have any doubts then please ask them all so as to clarify them..!!

as we increase the no. of electrons in s orbital, we have a strong shielding from s orbital..... so net effective charge on the adjacent atom's electrons decreses....hence its electronegativity decreses.....


Thus, Protium has largest electro-vetivity...... Smile

Q . EXAMINE THE FOLLOWING TWO CANONICAL STRUCTURES AND CHOOSE THE CORRECT STATEMENT FROM THE GIVEN BELOW-( MORE THAN ONE CORRECT) (1) IS MORE STABLE THAN TWO (2) IS MORE STABLE THAN (1) (1)...
 
 
More the number of pi-bond, more is the stability and hence (2) is more stable (so having less energy than (1)) canonical structure and contribute more in resonating structure....

yes but why does bromo come first over hydroxy? I mean Br is a substituent and OH is a functional grp right? so shouldnt OH got priority over Br?
