Q. 13.7( 8 Votes )
Isostructural species are those which have the same shape and hybridisation. Among the given species identify the isostructural pairs.
A. [NF3 and BF3 ]
B. [BF4- and NH4+ ]
C. [BCl3 and BrCl3]
D. [NH3 and NO3-]
Isostructural species are those which have the same shape and hybridization.
NF3 is pyramidal whereas BF3 is planar triangular.
BF–4 and NH+4 ions both are tetrahedral.
BCl3 is a triangular planar whereas BrCl3 is pyramidal.
NH3 is pyramidal whereas NO3 is a triangular planar.
Thus, option (ii) is correct.
