why do group 1 metals dissolve in liquid NH3 TO GIVE coloured solution?

Asked by HIMANSHI SHARMA 11th October 2013, 8:28 PM
Answered by Expert

Group 1 metals dissolve in liquid NH3 to give coloured solution because ammoniated electron absorbs energy in the visible region of light and thus imparts blue colour to the solution.

  • The solution is paramagnetic in nature and liberates hydrogen to form amide.
  • The concentrated solution is bronze in colour and diamagnetic in nature.
