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

why benzene does not form hydrogenbond in water where as glucose form hydrogen bond in water ?
 
 
Benzene does not make hydrogen bond with water. The hydrogen attatched to a higly electronegative element(F,O and N) can only make H-bonding. Benzene does not have this kind of hydrogen

Actually, there is the hydrogen bond formation by benzene in water. Please check.

COCl2 -------> CO + Cl2 1000 torr (initial) 1000(1-x) 1000x 1000x Total pressure= 1000(1+x) = 1500 x= 0.5 or (50% dissociation) Kp= (pCl2)(pCO)/(pCOCl2) = 500 X 500 /500 you will get the...
