Problem 24SP

(a) Both PCl3 and PCl5 are stable compounds. Draw Lewis structures for these two compounds.

(b) NCl 3 is a known compound, but all attempts to synthesize have failed. Draw Lewis structures for and a hypothetical NCl5, and explain why NCl5 is an unlikely structure.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 24SP:

Here, we are going to draw the Lewis structures of the following compounds.

Step 1:

(a)

Valence electrons of P = 5

Valence electrons of Cl = 7

Total valence electrons in PCl3 = 5 + 3 x7 = 26 e

The Lewis structure of PCl3 is as follows:

Step 2:

Valence electrons of P = 5

Valence electrons of Cl = 7

Total valence electrons in PCl3 = 5 + 5 x7 = 40 e

The Lewis structure of PCl5 is as follows:
