Question

Calculate the number of peroxy linkage(s) in H2S2O8.
  1. 2
  2. 0
  3. 1
  4. None of the above


Solution

The correct option is C 1
H2S2O8, number of central atom = 1
Number of peroxy linkage=Calculated oxidation state - Maximum oxidation state2
Consider the oxidation state of S as 'x' in  H2S2O8
 2x+8×(2)+2=0
 x=+7
Thus calculated oxidation state of S = +7
Maximum oxidation of sulphur = number of valence electron = +6
 Number of peroxy linkage=761
 Number of peroxy linkage=1
