Explain the structure of pcl3 and pcl5.
Asked by Sezaljathorar | 22nd Jul, 2019, 05:55: PM
1) Structure of PCl3:
It has a pyramidal shape as shown, in which phosphorus is sp3 hybridised.
2) Structure of PCl5:
- It has a trigonal bipyramidal structure, in gaseous and liquid phases.
- The three equatorial P–Cl bonds are equivalent, while the two axial bonds are longer than equatorial bonds.
- This is due to the axial bond pairs suffer more repulsion as compared to equatorial bond pairs
