Question #24993
why ccldelta does not conduct electricity
Expert's answer
CCl4 is a liquid (at higher temperatures is a gas) and forms covalent bonding also it has no ions for bonding hence will not conduct electricity. In the carbon tetrachloride molecule, four chlorine atoms are positioned symmetrically as corners in a tetrahedral configuration joined to a central carbon atom by single covalent bonds. Because of this symmetrical geometry, CCl4 is non-polar.
