What are electron deficient compounds? Explain with example.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The molecule in which central atom has lesser electrons than octet are electron deficient. For example in AlCl3, Al has incomplete octet, having 6 electrons in outermost orbital. Since, it lacks one electron pair hence it is electron deficient compound

- sir/mam I am suffering from a query that how to find whether the given compound is hypovalent or hypervalent or follows octet rule .though I remembered the examples, but I need a proper method
- Name two minerals of Boron with their chemical formulae.
- Write down the outermost electronic configuration of group 13 elements.
- Which of the following element exist as liquid in summer among group 13 elements?
- How many groups belong to p-block elements?
- What is inert pair effect?
- Write reactions to justify amphoteric nature of aluminium.
- Generally atomic radii increases down the group, but atomic radius of Ga is less than that of Al. Why?
- Classify following oxides as neutral, acidic, basic or amphoteric. B2O3, Al2O3, Ga2O3, In2O3, Tl2O3.
