Answer to Question #54417 in Inorganic Chemistry for Misha Jain
What is the correct order of hydrolysis and why?
(a) NaCl < MgCl2 < AlCl3 < SiCl4 < PCl5
(b) CCl4 < SiCl4 < GeCl4 < SnCl4 < PbCl4
(c) SF6 < SeF6 < TeF6
(d) Both (a) and (c)
The hydrolysis increases with the increase in oxidation number.
Oxidation number increases in (a), (b) and (c) rows.
So that the correct order of hydrolysis is: a, b, c.
