Question

Strong reducing behaviour of H3PO2 is due to


A
high electron gain enthalpy of phosphorus
loader
B
high oxidation state of phosphorus
loader
C
presence of two - OH groups and one P - H bond
loader
D
presence of one - OH group and two P - H bonds.
loader

Solution

The correct option is B presence of one - OH group and two P - H bonds.
All oxyacids of phosphorus which have P - H bonds act as strong reducing agents. H3PO2 has two P - H bonds hence, it acts as a strong reducing agent.
