Question

Which of the following is an electrophile ?


Your Answer
A
H2O
Correct Answer
B
SO3
Your Answer
C
NH3
Your Answer
D
ROR

Solution

The correct option is D SO3
A reagent which donates an electron pair to an electron deficient centre is known as nucleophiles.
. .NH3, H. .O. .H, R. .O. .R  are nucleophiles as they have lone pair of electrons to donate.

A reagent which can accept an electron pair in a reaction, is called an electrophile.
SO3 has a vacant d-orbital. So, it can accept electron pair and hence act as electrophile (or lewis acid).
