Important Applications of Backbonding
I didn't understand how flourine haven't any empty orbital but chlorine have.....Mam pls give me some hint to understand clearly..
Sure Shruti. Here we are talking about back-bonding for which d-orbitals are needed. Chlorine ki configuration mein 3d aata hai, so d orbitals are involved. But in Flourine these is no involvement if d orbital as it's configuration is 1S2 2S2 2P5

Lekin ,mam chlorine ki configuration - 1s2,2s2,2p6,3s2,3p5 hoti hai then how 3d orbitals are involved...??
Lekin n=3 to valid hai na Cl ke liye, isiliye 3d orbitals hongi Cl ke pass and they will be empty. F ke liye n=2 hai, and we know that for n=2, d orbital is not present. So, F will lack d orbitals.
