Why is the maximum covalency of first elements of each group in the p block is 4?
Asked by Alekhya K | 16th Jul, 2014, 05:54: PM
First elements of each group in the p-block elements shows anomalous behaviour due to:
- Small size
- High electronegativity
- Non-availability of empty d-orbitals
Due to these reasons, compounds of the first elements of each group are highly covalent and show maximum covalency of four.
