Question

Of the two allotropes- white and red phosphorus, __ phosphorus does not react with alkali solution.


Solution

White phosphorus reacts with alkali solution while red phosphorus does not. This can be used to separate a mixture of the two allotropes. Alternatively, the fact that white phosphorus is soluble in CS2, can also be used to separate a mixture of the allotropes.
