Question

In which of the following pairs of compounds xenon is involved in $$sp^{3}$$ hybridisation :


A
XeF2,XeF4
loader
B
XeF2,XeF6
loader
C
XeF4,XeF6
loader
D
XeO3,XeO4
loader

Solution

The correct option is D $$XeO_{3}, XeO_{4}$$
$$XeO_{3}= 3+\frac{8-6}{2}=3+1$$ $$ sp^{3}$$ hybridisation  is trigonal pyramidal with asymmetric charge distribution on the central atom. Therefore this molecule is polar.

$$XeO_{4}= 4$$ $$ sp^{3}$$ hybridisation In the fourth excited, xenon atom has 8 unpaired electrons. One “s” and three “p” – orbitals undergo $$sp^3$$ hybridisation.
