PI3 الحموضة / القلوية
PI3 is basic/alkaline in nature due to the presence of lone pairs of electrons.
Is PI3 عديم الرائحة؟
PI3 is odourless in nature.
Is PI3 مغناطيسي؟
Paramagnetic species are those which contain unpaired electrons and these are feebly attracted by the magnetic field. Let us see the paramagnetic nature of PI3.
PI3 is paramagnetic in nature. PI3 contains phosphorous and when we see the electronic configuration of phosphorous then there are no unpaired electrons as the p orbital is half-filled and in iodine, there is an unpaired electron because of which paramagnetism is seen in the compound.
