How to know whether molecule is paramagnetic or dimagnetic for compound having having electrons more than 20???? Can we take valence electrons to determine MO configuration of molecule having more than 20 electrons???

Expert Answer:

Compounds are diamagnetic when they contain no unpaired electrons. Molecular compounds that contain one or more unpaired electrons are paramagnetic.

For the compounds having more than 20 electrons; It will depend on the filling of electrons in the orbits.

Yes. we can take valence electrons to determine MO configuration of molecule having more than 20 electrons.
