how non-availability of d orbitals effect the anomalous behaviour of Be and Li?

Asked by  | 21st Jan, 2012, 12:00: AM

Expert Answer:

Due to the non-availability of d orbitals, Be and Li cannot expand their covalency beyond four i.e.they cannot form more than four bonds while other elements of their group can form more than four bonds.
