Question

The low melting point and the high solubility of LiCl in organic solvents is due to:


A
Covalent nature because of polarising power of small Li+ on Cl
loader
B
Very low lattice energy
loader
C
Low hydration energy of Li+ in water
loader
D
Low hydration energy of Cl in water
loader

Solution

The correct option is A Covalent nature because of polarising power of small Li+ on Cl
Though LiCl has a high lattice energy, due to the polarisation of Cl by Li+, it has covalent character. Hence, it has low melting point and high solubility in organic solvents.
