Question

Specify the co-ordination geometry around and hybridization of N and B-atoms in a 1 : 1 complex of BF3 and NH3:



A

N : Tetrahedral, sp3; B : Tetrahedral, sp3

loader
B

N : Pyramidal, sp3; B : Pyramidal, sp3

loader
C

N : Pyramidal, sp3; B : Planar, sp3

loader
D

N : Pyramidal, sp3; B : Tetrahedral, sp3

loader

Solution

The correct option is A

N : Tetrahedral, sp3; B : Tetrahedral, sp3


In ammonia boron trifluoride complex both boron and nitrogen are in sp3 hybridized state, because a lone pair of electron present on nitrogen atom in ammonia molecule is accommodated into the sp3 hybrid orbital after boron involves itself in sp3 hybridization.
