what are F-centres?.... How are they responsible for imparting diff colors to comp...(KCl, NaCl)..?

when the crystals are heated in Na vapour, the Na atoms are deposited on the surface of the crystal. The Cl- ions diffuse to the surfaceand combine with Na to give NaCl. This happens by the loss of e- by Na atoms to form Na+ ions. The released e- difuse into the crystaland occupy anionic sites. As a result the crystal has excess of Na. the anionic sites occupied by the unpaired e- are called F-Centers . They impart yellow colour to NaCl. Pink to LiCl and lilac to KCl.
