Question

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

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

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.Chemistry
