Why Lithium iodide is more covalent in character than Lithium chloride?
Asked by ankit.bhardwaj | 3rd Sep, 2010, 12:00: AM
lithium iodide is more covalent than lithium chloride because the electronegativity in halogens is in the following sequence F>Cl>Br>I.
Thus flourine is most electronegative while iodine is least in halogens.
Covalent character of bond increases down the group so i.e. F
Therefore lithium iodide is more covalent than lithium chloride.
