Question

Among the following species, identify the isostructural pairs, .

Solution

Correct option is

 

Structure of molecule can be ascertained by knowing the number of hybrid bonds in the molecule. Thus

In NF3, N is sp3 hybridized as 4 orbitals are involved in bonding. 

In , N is sp2 hybridized as 3 orbitals are involved in bonding. 

In BF3, B is sp2 hybridized and 3 orbitals are involved in bonding.   

In H3O+, O is sp3 hybridized as 4 orbitals are involved in bonding.

Thus, isostructural pairs are [NF3, H3O+] and .
