Question

Which of the following compounds will exist in ionic form in its solid state?
N2O5, PCl5, PBr5, PF5, IF5, I2Cl6, NO2


Solution

Compounds that exist as ionic solids are:
N2O5NO+2+NO3
PCl5PCl+4+PCl6
PBr5PBr+4+Br
IF5IF4+IF6
I2Cl6ICl+2+ICl4

PF5 due to the small size and high charge density of F, has more polarisation and hence has more covalent character.
